Equine assisted mental health sessions offer so much to participants.
Many people comment that, after a session, they feel calmer and more grounded. They feel clearer about their way forward in situations and better able to navigate tough decisions by gaining much-needed perspective on their lives. Relationships are richer with improved communication, and frustrations are more manageable.
Sessions with the horses teach you a lot about who you are at your core, including how you relate and communicate with the people around you, how you handle problems, where you get stuck in life, what you believe about yourself, and how you might hold yourself back. The sessions also provide you with many skills in mindful living, stress reduction techniques, tips for quieting your inner critic, self-awareness, communication skills, boundary setting, and living authentically.
Horses ask us to show up authentically even when it means we are messy or emotional. Horses can feel if we are not at home in who we are and support us to find the way back to ourself. They provide a safe, gentle and unconditional space for us to fall apart and share our truth, they allow us to really be where we are at.
