Bonnie Riley, Licensed Psychologist, offers Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) to those who want to experience therapy through hands-on therapies rather than office based therapy. Accomplishing a task with a 1200 pound horse requires utilizing leadership skills and confidence and therefore provides wonderful metaphors when dealing with other intimidating and challenging situations in life. Horses have the ability to mirror exactly what human body language is telling them. Horses are very much like humans in that they are social animals. They have defined roles within their herds. They have distinct personalities, attitudes, and moods. Horses provide vast opportunities for us to learn about ourselves. Interacting with horses in a therapeutic environment is effective with even the most challenging individuals or groups.
Strengthening Body & Mind
Our mission is to provide an educational and therapeutic experience for children and adults through horsemanship to strengthen body and mind in order to improve quality of life.
