Why horses: Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) utilizes a mental health professional, an equine specialist, horses and clients to work on learning goals. Horses have mirror cells that help them mimic peoples’ behaviors and feelings.  EAL is not riding. It’s freely using the horses to develop relationships and use as metaphors in educational goals.  One might hear us ask “What are the horses doing”, because a horse can tell us a great deal about our thoughts and feelings. 

$100 fee per person for 4 sessions

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy: Women's Empowerment Workshop

Eliina Belenkiy, M.Ed., Resident in Counseling

Horses react instinctually to the emotional state of those around them and can mirror for us what we are feeling. 
By observing the behavior of the horse and reflecting on it, one can embark on a journey of self-discovery and exploration. In this workshop participants will learn about themselves by participating in activities with horses while using body language, observation and movement to communicate with the horses, the group will then discuss observations, feelings and patterns and discover how they can foster the feeling of personal empowerment.
