Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) utilizes a team approach that includes a licensed Mental Health Professional, an Equine Specialist, and horses working together with individual’s, couples, and groups in an arena with the horses front and center, deliberately unhindered and never ridden, allowed to interact with the client as they wish at all times. When inside the arena, all the work is done on the ground, this creates space for the client, with the support of the professional team, to reflect, project, and make deep connections.
We utilize the Eagala Model because it embraces the science that humans learn best by doing. The model prescribes a hands-on approach where clients are given the space to project and analyze their situations, make connections, and find their own solutions. Since the solutions are personally experienced in conjunction with intellectual understanding, they tend to be deeper, more profound, and longer lasting.
