Equine Assisted Activities are beneficial to everyone! We tailor our sessions to fit your needs and goals. Willow Equine is pleased to work with clients of all ages, backgrounds and goals. The beauty of this work, horses take what is held inside and translates it into tangible experiences. Watch a Vimeo on how Eagala is the global standard
When with the horses, all the work is done on the ground, deliberately free moving, never ridden, and allowed to interact with the client as they wish. This creates the space for the client, with the support of the professional facilitators, to reflect, project, and make deep connections. Clients are the experts in their life and have the answers. The tranquility of the farm and hands-on approach allow a client to take a deep restorative breath of fresh air and find both peace and inner resilience.
  
There are many types of equine therapy - Hippotherapy, Therapeutic Horsemanship, or Therapeutic Riding. This work is highly beneficial, however it is not what we offer. We strictly follow the ground based model called Eagala, which offers mental health and personal development opportunities. Here is a great article about the Differences in Equine Therapy.

This work is client driven, meaning you take the lead. Our team is there to observe the horses and reflect what is seen and heard. There are always the client, a mental health professional, an equine specialist and the horses (sometimes llamas too) in each session! The role of our team is to set up suitable experiences, pose problems, set boundaries, support clients, ensure physical and emotional safety and facilitate the learning process. During the sessions, the team may step back from the clients and move around the arena to observe the horses interactions, behaviors, shifts, and patterns. The observation process, with the horses, may be discussed with the client during debrief resulting in personal reflection and insight.

We will be in a pasture with free moving animals. Close toe shoes such as boots or sneakers are recommended. Dress accordingly to the season and weather forecast.
