THROUGH THE HORSE'S EYES
Horses have a unique way of sensing and mimicking human behavior and emotions. Equine Assisted Therapy allows humans to interact and connect with horses and each other in a non-threatening, non-judgmental atmosphere. Through these interactions, emotional and behavioral tendencies are uncovered and encountered under the supervision of a certified instructor.
The Constance Project and Beyond the Call are innovative programs that have been proven to have a positive impact on their participants. They are unique in that they use the reactions of a horse to its handler to vividly demonstrate the way we communicate with one another. Both programs are thought-provoking experiences that cause participants to strongly consider the way they treat others and how they view themselves.

"At my first session, Lilly (one of the horses we work with) came up and hugged me. I immediately felt the weight of the world lift off of my shoulders... This program has helped me form a different perspective on life and the way I view things, especially things that are out of my control. "
