Equine Facilitated Staff Development – Life Lessons Enhanced Through Horses

Equine facilitated staff development workshops, retreats, and corporate training utilize structured activities to promote team building and leadership, stimulate creativity, and enhance problem-solving.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, or EAP, is an emerging field in which horses are used as tools for emotional growth and learning. EAP is a collaborative effort between a licensed therapist and a horse professional.
