Equine Assisted Psychotherapy


Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) is a type of therapy that involves horses in the treatment process. The goal of EAP is to help individuals improve their mental health and well-being through interactions with horses. During EAP sessions, individuals work with a licensed therapist and a trained equine specialist to engage in activities with the horses, such as grooming, leading, and riding. These activities are designed to promote self-awareness, emotional regulation, and interpersonal skills, among other things. EAP is often used to treat a variety of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction.
