Equine assisted mental health is a healing treatment that combines credentialed mental health professionals and one or more therapeutic horses. Through 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 EAT has 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
Autism and Aspergers
Relationship difficulties
Attachment issues, including adoption adjustment
Low self-esteem
Negative behavioural issues.
