Benefits of our Program

Studies have indicated that Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) has been successful in helping clients show marked improvements in the following areas:

• Assertiveness

• Emotional awareness

• Empathy

• Stress tolerance

• Flexibility

• Impulse control

• Problem-solving skills

• Self-actualization

• Independence

• Self-regard

• Social responsibility

• Interpersonal relationships

Many of the benefits of EAP are likely due to the nature of the animal with which the client and specialized treatment team are interacting with. Horses are typically non-judgmental, have no preconceived expectations or motives, and are highly effective at mirroring attitudes and behaviors of the humans with whom they are working.
