Equine Assisted Therapy and Activities
Who would benefit from Equine Assisted Therapy?
All humans with the emphasis 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, CT Farm Bureau, a variety of Public School Systems. We work
with Courts for Youth at Risk, 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 have also worked 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 participant 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 Fibromyalgia and Neuropathy, Bereavement, Cancer
Recovery, Communication Skills, Family Counseling, ADD, Depression, PTSD, TBI, Detachment Disorder, Stress, Pain Management,
People In Transition, Cronic Illness, Domestic Violence including those recovering from 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".
I have been asked if horses can help heal cancer.

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"
- Boosts Confidence and Self-Esteem
- Develops Personal
- Develops Trust, Patience and Responsibility
- Enhances Listening and Communication Skills
-Strengthens Emotional Control and Self Discipline

Ever wonder what happens to abused and neglected horses? Some
put them to sleep others beat or starve to death, some are left tied to barns with notes attached as the owners have 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.
as ours are run by people with regular jobs, are hard working and have 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 reaching out to all of YOU for help. As a 501(c)3 non profit, this
facility survives on donaions 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
