Equine Assisted Therapy
EQUINE-ASSISTED THERAPY & LIFE SKILLS
Equine Assisted Therapy is an experiential approach involving ground-based activities with horses. Through interacting with horses, it is possible to find unique solutions and discover real and lasting change to deep issues that have been creating problems in your life. Each session includes one or more horse(s), a mental health specialist, and an equine specialist, and lasts approximately one hour. As an Eagala certified practitioner, I follow professional and ethical guidelines and use a holistic, solution-oriented approach that may encompass a range of techniques and healing modalities. I believe we each have our own answers when given a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to find them. No horse experience is necessary.

“Who would have known that an hour spent quietly alongside a gentle horse would reveal so much? This is quite remarkable.”

EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING & COACHING
with Renate Barrack
From a very young age, horses have been my passion. I have coached and trained around the world, but my ultimate learning is that horses have much more to teach us than we are teaching them.
EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING
Life Skills Coaching
This ground-based experience is simply about spending time with a horse or horses, learning about others and self, without any actual riding. In these valuable sessions, you will learn one or more of the following: respect, responsibility, relationships skills, boundaries, emotional regulation, assertiveness, connection, communication, empathy, acknowledging and working with vulnerability, relaxation, breathing, grounding, and congruence.
The work with the horses will help to build self-esteem, self-efficacy, a sense of mastery, and empathy, which will lead to the opening of positive opportunities. These sessions are tailor-made to your needs.
