Mission Statement

Equine services encourages skills of patience, self-confidence, trust, and compassion. Groups, individuals, couples and families learn by directly working with a horse. Participants use feelings, behaviors, and patterns to better understand the horse and themselves. Horses use body language and often mirror the emotions and behaviors of the participants that surround them. We choose activities to help each person come to important insights and learn new skills. Everyone is given the opportunity to discuss feelings, behaviors, and patterns they noticed during the activity. We also discuss how these elements may be found in other areas of their lives. Non-verbal communication, problem solving, boundary setting, leadership, confidence, and relationships are all common themes.
