YOUR WELLNESS MATTERS

 Experience Restoration Through Horses

HOW CAN HORSES HELP YOU?

There are countless stories throughout history about the horse's bravery, loyalty, and deep attachment to humans. But using them to help heal emotional wounds, replace fear with confidence, or improve a group’s ability to cooperate and lead dynamic change are ways that professionals have started to use horses in unique programs around the world.

Watch this quick video to understand more about equine-assisted therapy and one of the program models we use here at ENGAGE SERVICES.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT HORSES?

Horses and humans share similar traits; they are social,  relational, and emotional. They both have distinct personalities and attitudes, are moody, stubborn, and defiant, and like to have fun. In other words, horses are a lot like us.

 

Except in one important aspect: horses are prey animals. Their very survival depends on their extreme sensitivity to the environment and attention to nuances and nonverbal communication. They instantly respond to each other and humans, reading their cues without judgment, and provide important bio-feedback when used as part of any equine-assisted program. They aren’t fooled by incongruent behavior. We partner with horses because of the reciprocal relationship that is possible. Horses are capable of engaging in healthy, genuine connections, relationships, and partnerships.

 

We invite you to become a part of a community where transformation, healing, and purposeful relationships occur. We are passionate about breaking the cycles of pain, poverty, abuse, and neglect - in a word, trauma!
