Utah Equine Assisted Therapy

Regardless of what condition or ailment you face, you can find peace and clarity through equine therapy. With the help of these large, gentle animals, patients are able to see their own behavior mirrored, thus allowing them to begin working through pain, frustrations, anxiety, and other debilitating conditions, to find freedom and confidence.

How Equine Therapy Works

Offering a variety of equine therapy options from group dynamics, trauma, and cognitive and behavioral therapy, this type of therapy is unlike any other kind patients can participate in.

During equine assisted therapy sessions, patients work with a horse trainer and a therapist, taking each movement and interaction with the horse as a way to help patients better understand themselves and their own feelings and actions. Horses tend to be hyper-vigilant and very aware of their environment, much like people who have experienced trauma or live with anxiety, making the connection between humans struggling with these conditions and horses that much easier and that much more important.
