The nature of horses and their defense mechanisms are perfectly aligned to teach humans how to:
Horses' need for self-preservation creates socially harmonious herds. Equine herd dynamics utilize, demonstrate, and model the same human qualities found in functional families necessary to form healthy relationships. Horses don't care who you are, what you've done, or what you believe. They care how you behave with them. This enables unconditional acceptance, creating self-worth, which can be hard to obtain with typical therapy methods.
Equine-assisted therapy has become one of the most beneficial and cost-effective programs by creating breakthroughs in self-awareness that occurred from simply interacting with a horse.
Having been through family court with special needs children, I know the emotional and financial costs, unpredictable outcomes, and the absence of resources. Anxiety and helplessness are natural reactions when the things most intimate to you are in the hands of strangers who seem to speak a different language and can offer no guarantees.
Even the most straightforward divorces and custody issues leave scars on families, from spouses and children to extended family and friends. More complicated cases can often leave families unable to move forward.
These programs can help your family develop new tools and an "emotional fitness" level that seemed impossible initially.
