Frequently asked questions

Common questions about our equine intensives.

Do I need prior experience with horses? 

No! Are you willing to get outside your comfort zone and show up wholeheartedly? You’re in! Our incredible guides and therapists will expertly assist you in getting acquainted with the horses and curate the best experience possible, no matter your experience level! 

Will I get to ride a horse? 

During your experience, we will offer a blend of therapeutic exercises conducted on the ground and on horseback.  While riding is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your connection with the horse, it is by invitation only and will be conducted only if you feel safe and choose to participate.  You do not have to ride to gain the full therapeutic benefits of this program.

What happens if the weather prevents us from being outdoors?

If the weather limits our time outdoors, we can still engage in healing therapeutic practices on the Onsite campus.

What is the benefit of doing equine-assisted healing?

Equine-assisted therapy assists in breaking down barriers that keep us from our authentic selves.  There are a multitude of benefits we are able to receive when partnering with a horse.  For example, strengthening our emotional awareness, increasing our ability to attune to ourselves and others, establishing healthy boundaries, improving our communication techniques, and learning how to effectively self-regulate.  Additionally, horses curate an environment that safely encourages us to practice being present and aware of the feelings that are occurring in our bodies at all times.  This type of mindfulness is vital for our emotional, mental, and physical health, especially for those who have experienced trauma.

What therapy techniques are used?

Using a host of cutting-edge therapeutic modalities, including EMDR, psychodrama, experiential therapy, internal family systems, and more, these programs curate the opportunity to incorporate and weave equine therapy throughout the entire experience.
