People who may benefit from EAP
Initially, some people may be intimidated by the size and strength of horses, however EAP and EAL provide opportunities to overcome fear, develop confidence, and find solutions to their most challenging issues. After working through carefully chosen activities, clients discuss their thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns with the facilitator team, (mental health professional and horse professional). Sometimes, EAP and EAL may involve intense emotional responses, which often lead to increased awareness and desired growth. Positive change is the ultimate goal of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) are powerful and effective methods of helping clients gain new insights about themselves and others. Since horses are highly sensitive and intuitive prey animals by design, they have an innate ability to detect and mirror human emotions and issues.
Their responses during sessions provide living, breathing metaphors through which clients often see life from a whole new perspective. Sessions do not involve riding. Valuable learning takes place when participants interact with horses on the same level.
