Equine-Assisted Therapy (EAT)
Benefits of Equine-Facilitated Psychotherapy
Equine- Assisted Therapy (EAT) is an experiential form of therapy that involves interaction between horses and individuals or groups seeking a change. Horses can provide a sense of safety and comfort as they are gentle and responsive animals. Working with horses can help people develop a sense of trust and establish a supportive relationship.
EAT involves reflecting on one’s emotions, behavior, and communication patterns. People may develop new insights and perspectives about themselves, thus improving their self-esteem and self-awareness. This process can help people identify their triggers and learn skills to cope with them, empowering them and promoting resilience. The results of EAT can help people feel more in control and confident in their daily lives.
