Our aim is to offer Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) leading to therapeutic benefits for individuals.

People benefit from regular contact with animals, in particular our focus with horses, whether that be the calming effect, learning new skills or building new relationships. Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) incorporates horses for individuals’ growth and learning to improve wellbeing. It is a collaboration between an experienced equine freelancer working with the clients and with the horses to lead to therapeutic gain.

EAA means that participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviours, and patterns.  EAA is used in a variety of fields; and horses can help people with physical issues, speech problems, behavioural issues, emotional problems, and other disabilities. Those that participate often express appreciation for the process. In my opinion, EAA is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach that has an incredible impact on individuals, families, and groups. I feel EAA addresses a variety of mental health and development needs including behavioural issues, attention deficit disorder, PTSD, substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication needs.

Equine Assisted Activities (EAA) can assist the following groups of people:
