Equine assisted therapy is an effective form of non-traditional addiction and/or mental health treatment. During equine assisted therapy, you will interact with a horse or horses in a series of exercises designed to strengthen and develop non-verbal and verbal communication, creative thinking, problem solving, leadership, trust, responsibility, confidence, and relationship skills. Equine assisted therapy is a way for you to build upon and directly apply the tools you acquire in other areas of treatment at Legacy. The experience of bonding with an animal offers many advantages. Working with an animal, often allows individuals to let their guard down and reduce stress. Studies have revealed that people actually have lower heart rates and stress levels when in the presence of animals. There is no horseback riding involved in equine assisted therapy, and your sessions will be led by a trained therapist, as well as, an equine specialist.
