What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy?

At Honey Badger Farm we use the Eagala Model which is a team approach that includes a licensed, credentialed Mental Health Professional, a qualified Equine Specialist, and horses working together with the client in an arena at all times.

 

When inside the arena, all the work is done on the ground with the horses front and center, deliberately unhindered and never ridden, and allowed to interact with the client as they wish. This modality creates the space for the client, with the support of the professional facilitators, to reflect, project, and make deep connections.

We are currently working with substance recovery groups, veterans groups, and private individuals.
