We are proud to offer services in Equine Assisted Therapy. We work as the Equine Professional while using the EAGALA Model of equine assisted therapy. In this model the team consists of the Equine Professional, the Mental Health Professional and a group of qualified horses. Currently we contract our services with mental health providers. This is a great way to learn about yourself through the use of horses as mirrors. Truly an experience all should see to believe. This practice can be used in Addictions Counseling, Team Building and Leadership as well as Family Counseling to Marriage Counseling. A use of horses as a powerful learning tool.

Horse Powered Reading® integrates social-emotional learning with academics; thus allowing students see and experience reading with their entire mind, body and emotions by creating metaphors for the skills involved in reading.

Students interact with horses from the ground, while using toys and props to identify obstacles and learn five critical reading skills - phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension

* Session goals vary depending upon the needs of the individual or group
