What is Equine Assisted Mental Health?

Equine Assisted Mental Health is a healing treatment that combines credentialed mental health professionals and one or more therapeutic horses. Through being with the horse, grooming the horse or other beneficial activities, clients are supported and guided in learning more about themselves, working through difficulties, and improving communication and relationship skills.

There is a growing body of evidence that supports that equine assisted mental health sessions have been effective in treating individuals with personal and psychological concerns, including:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Bullying – both for the committer and the victim
  • Substance abuse and addictions
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Stress
  • Autism and Aspergers
  • ADD and ADHD
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Attachment issues, including adoption adjustment
  • Low self-esteem
  • Negative behavioral issues.
