Healing with horses together; this program brings a horse from the community that has been left behind (through health, treatment, or other means) and a person who is needing support together to learn and heal. Together these two build a bond of empathy, shared experiences and growth. This program is a 10-part, weekly, or as needed, program which bonds emotional healing with life skills, all while helping horses do the same. The program is flexible as needed for the client but runs an average of 10 months. It can also be broken down into individual workshops for groups.
Through this program, we cover in-depth topics such as boundaries, consistency, trust and communication. Each session creates space to talk about connections to past experiences and struggles in life. For example, a session debrief might have questions like: "Have you ever felt how you horse is feeling? What is your earliest memory of that feeling?" These sessions build a bridge to healing, both for the person, and for the horse! Each Session is split between horse time, and debrief. (Which is our fancy word for "Talking about it") Life is a journey, but you don't have to walk it alone!
