Equine Assisted Therapy is:

  • holistic

  • experiential

  • a highly specialised form of therapy 

  • where you don’t ride the horse

  • where you carry out tasks such as feeding, grooming and leading the horse

  • your therapist and equestrian professional (I am both) plan specific tasks or ‘obstacles’ that support the overcoming of challenges within our plan made to enable you to attain your therapeutic goals

And for your scientifically proven physical benefits this therapy:


  • reduces blood pressure

  • reduces your heart rate

  • calms


  • releases endorphins


  • is anti-depressant

  • increases self confidence

  • helps you feel part of nature and part of something bigger than yourself

Many of the benefits of equine therapy are likely due to the nature of the horses themselves: 


  • naturally gentle and calm creatures

  • mirror and respond to human behaviour


  • horses are highly effective at interacting in a gentle, patient, non-judgemental manner
