Horses are dynamic, sensitive animals that communicate through the subtle use of body language. They respond to situations by giving immediate, honest feedback without judgement. Horses are large and powerful so working with them naturally creates an opportunity for individuals to overcome fear and develop self-confidence. Horses have their own unique personalities, attitudes, moods and backgrounds, which provide endless experiences and situations for growth, healing, learning and relationship building.
Equine-assisted activities and therapy increase communication, social and organizational skills while encouraging both teamwork and independence. Participants often perceive therapeutic riding and horsemanship as a more positive experience than traditional therapy, serving as a strong motivator in achieving their therapeutic goals. Horse SenseAbility serves participants with emotional, neurological and cognitive challenges and those in difficult life circumstances.
