Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy is a form of counseling that involves a horse(s), a certified Equine Specialist in Mental Health & Learning, a Counselor, and the Client. The horse provides valuable information about changes in the client’s mood and behavior. These changes create learning and personal growth opportunities for individuals and families. This form of therapy can be especially effective for youth and adults who have struggled to engage in traditional talk-based therapy.
