Personal development and Life Skills for Children and Youth
In a safe, fun and challenging environment teens are encouraged to develop their Personal Horse Power. Through the unique teaching of horses teens learn different ways of relating to others, their environment and one another. Activities with the horses increase self awareness, integrity, respect and trust, facilitate the learning to stand ground when necessary, explore respecting, developing and maintaining boundaries opportunities to practice self-care skills and to ask for help when necessary.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy is a unique non-traditional form of therapy where the horse is an integral medium of the therapy. Healing through interaction with horses; is experiential and very much in the present moment. Children and adolescents with emotional and behavioural challenges respond extremely well to the unconditional and non-judgemental mirror that the horses provides. We also offer sessions to a adults, families and couples.
Rates are dependent on the number and type of sessions you enroll for and are available on request.
