Equine Assisted Therapy & Learning

Private & Group 

EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth & Learning Association) is the global standard for professionals incorporating horses to address personal development needs. An Eagala team is comprised of a licensed, credentialed mental health professional and a qualified equine specialist. Humans learn best by doing. As a solution-oriented modality, the philosophy is that humans hold their own best answers and working with the horses can be helpful in allowing clients to find those answers. The Eagala model prescribes an experiential, hands-on approach where participants are given the space to project and analyze their situations, make connections, and find their own solutions. The Eagala model work is all done on the ground. There is no riding. This provides the opportunity for horses and humans to interact freely and as needed in the moment and allows for clients to allow their story to unfold through the horses
