Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
We believe that horses, horseback riding, and the country environment benefit
and influence people’s life in many powerful ways.
We believe that therapeutic horseback riding and Equine Assisted Activities (EAGALA’s Model) provide spiritual, physical, emotional, social, educational, and behavioral benefits.
We believe that the EGALA’s model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning are an innovative, short term and effective modalities for emotional growth and learning.
We are committed to serving the military community in transitioning into a civilian community with adjustment issues, loss of identity, loss of community, grief, combat stress, post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), deployment issues and more.
We believe that our gentled and proven horses are invaluable assets ready to serve and benefit every individual in our community.
Our knowledge, training and experience with horses, trained instructors and our Eagala Certified Team of Mental Health Professionals and Equine Specialists are the key combination for best achievement of changing people’s life.
