Equine Assisted Therapy

Coming soon!

Introduction

The Sanctuary will be offering Equine Assisted Therapy to those interested in experiencing therapeutic interaction with horses. Working with horses is known to be soothing, therapeutic and empowering. Horses, those strong, intelligent creatures, can be very gentle and willing. Instinctively, their primal desire is to obey and please. Intuitive, they can sense human emotion of all sorts and being generous of spirit, they can respond with kindness and affection.

Anyone who has dogs or cats for pets, know that these animals offer unconditional love and ask for nothing more than their human to love them in return. (I take that back, they also ask for food and play. Smile)

Horses are similar in their response to kind attention. Also, simply being in their presence, with the least interaction, as I’ve said, is soothing.

Clients will be working one on one with a horse of their choice under the guidance and supervision of Marion. Some basic techniques of Shiatsu, a form of massage, will be taught to the client who will employ these techniques upon the horse, if desired. Other forms of simple interaction will be utilized according the client’s needs and wishes. All of the work involved will occur on the ground. There will be no riding.
