FORM A LASTING CONNECTION
Horses can provide incredible emotional support: building a trusting relationship with these beautiful and majestic creatures can help you navigate difficult emotions and manage treatment stressors. Equine-assisted therapy is the perfect opportunity to journey outside the traditional treatment environment and form a lasting connection that goes beyond words.
Heal with Experiential Therapy
While working with horses, participants will engage in hands-on activities, including grooming, feeding, leading, saddling, and learning to ride.
Equine-assisted experiential activities can help you improve your self-awareness, self-confidence, trust, communication, and problem-solving skills. Working with horses is an enjoyable experience that enables you to embrace the present moment.
Build on Your Treatment Progress
Horses provide immediate feedback by mirroring what’s going on inside, helping us access complex emotions we might not feel prepared to experience on our own.
During each 2-hour session, you’ll immerse yourself in the beauty of the Colorado landscape. You’ll connect with all of your senses and bring yourself back into your body – a necessary practice while processing the emotional challenges of treatment.
