About Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)
How Horses Heal
As prey animals, horses are highly sensitive to their environment and other beings, which creates immediate feedback that facilitates therapeutic understanding for the client. The unique human-horse bond offers a genuineness, transparency, and lack of judgment not often observed in human-human relationships.
EAP can help to improve self-awareness, emotion regulation, confidence, and self-worth. This process also fosters positive relationship changes by building trust, establishing healthy boundaries and developing secure attachment bonds.
