I feel grateful for the information and perspective in this cnn.com article about equine assisted therapy.
I liked the part where the father was quoted saying “I also feel very strongly that it gives her a sense of control over things in her life when she hasn’t always had a lot of choices about things,” Belle’s father added, “and the fact that the horses are such big animals, I think also makes her feel stronger.”
I also liked the section later in the article where Carolyn Garver, Director of the Dallas Autism Treatment Center stated “Veterans do really well with equine-assisted activities. Same with at-risk youth. It gives them a lot of self confidence.”
If a teenager in your life could benefit from equine assisted coaching, drop me an email and let's begin a dialogue about your situation.
