Equine Assisted Therapy and Activities

Who would benefit from Equine Assisted Therapy?  People with Psychological, Cognitive, Emotional and Social Disorders may use Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) adapted as needed - as a recreational and leisure experience.


The emphasis is on an Enjoyable and Relaxing Experience that provides Additional Therapeutic Benefits in the areas of Communication, Socialization, Posture, Structure, Mobility, and an overall improved quality of life.  Individuals may participate in horse - related activities to their maximum ability in an atmosphere of support, structure and socialization for the primary purpose of the intrinsic enjoyment of the activity.

We have worked with SECASA, Autism Speaks, CT. Farm Bureau, Public School Systems, Courts, Families of Children With Disabilities, Department of Children and Families, Tramautic Brain Injury Association, Wounded Warriors, Veterans Returning Home, United Community Family Services, Waterford Country School and an extensive variety of others.  We are currently working with the Montville Board of Education and have created classes for their High School and Middle School Children.We have extended ourselves to people in need of Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) and Recovery's of any kind. The program for each rider is customized to the specific objectives tailored to his/her ability. Second only to emphasis on safety is a large dose of fun – stretching, reaching, throwing, laughing all help the rider to relax, engage, and improve. Sessions may include games – throwing bean bags, shooting baskets, “red light green light,” Simon Says – to develop coordination, focus attention, and interject fun, as appropriate for the individual’s needs, maturity, and functionality.

 

Our programs extend to all needing help from Bereavement, Cancer Recovery, Communication Skills, Family Counseling, ADD/ADHD, Depression, PTSD, TBI, Emotional Attachment Disorder, Asbergers, Autism, Stress, People In Transition, Addictions and General Mental Health.

Since antiquity, the horse and human bond has been known for its healing power. Use of the horse in a therapeutic role, from helping wounded veterans regain functionality, to augmenting the development of struggling children, has grown dramatically since the mid-twentieth century. Two principal programs have developed, which may appear similar from a distance, but have different focus.  
 

The process of becoming one of the herd, has us slow down, become more present in time. Horses cues happen within seconds. When humans slow down and calm their breathing, feel from the heart and trust in their bodies communication system, they become at peace with themselves and their environment. One begins to feel connected to the energy of all that is. 

 Horses depend on knowing the emotional state of every member of their herd and they do not judge any emotion as good or bad. The herd is free to tell the truthand deal with their emotions as they arise authentically, responsibly, completely and in the moment. There is no blocking emotions. Horses stay clear and clean which brings them emotional freedom. This again is what we call "One with Horse".

Equine Therapy

Healing With Horses Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) 501(c)3 is the "CENTERPIECE" of the services we offer. The gentle, four-legged staff members are remarkable and intuitive.  These social animals can sense the surface of uncertainty as well as deep-seated emotional distress.  In effect, they hold up a mirror in which clients can view themselves. The two-legged staff members then translate and help the clients apply short and long-term changes to find balanced more fulfilling lives.
Our programs are based on the belief that our participants' needs are of the utmost importance-horses and humans alike. Our entire staff is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. We would welcome the opportunity to deliver the best service in the EAT industry. With a variety of programs to choose from. We will meet and exceed your expectations.
There is enough evidence to prove some of the most insightful therapists eat hay. For decades, a branch of healing known under various names such as Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) and Equine Self Growth has help troubled, temporarily lost and traumatized children and adults find a sense of well-being, personal balance and happiness. Horses are considered to be empathic. This makes it easier for the horse to interact with the participant and has the ability to read the emotions of the student.  Their calm sentient nature including the ability to be non-judgmental makes the bond between horse and student a whole energy. What we call here at the facility "One With Horse"

 Ever wonder what happens to unwanted and abused horses? Some put them to sleep others beat or starve them to death, some are left tied to barns with notes attached as the owners have just moved on. Others have been placed alone in dark stalls with no food or water and some turn them over to the unknown with no regrets.  This has happened to many of the horses before arriving here.

 Rescues such as ours are run by people with regular jobs and passion in their hearts who struggle daily to provide food, shelter, medical care, vetting, supplements, farriers, treats and love to these majestic animals.

The love is the easy part. The work is difficult but the rewards are ongoing and heart felt. Volunteers work from their  heart with compassion and kindness. We are not able to do this alone. We are reaching out to all of YOU for help. As a 501(c)3 non profit, this facility survives on donations from regular people that work hard like you do. We need funding and sponsors. We cannot save them all. Together we CAN make a difference. Please consider helping.
Thank You for reading.
