Mission:Dedicated to enhancing the quality of life through unique equine-assisted experiences

The Challenge: Conducting relationships with patients and colleagues in a manner that is professional, perceptive, confident, and authentic.

The Solution:Medicine and Horsemanship Programs - An Equine Assisted Learning Course.

Summary: A challenge throughout a clinical career is to conduct relationships with patients and colleagues in a manner that is professional, perceptive, confident and authentic. Horses mirror and magnify our intentions and behaviors. Working with horses requires sensitivity to nonverbal cues, discrimination in the quality and amount of physical contact, and an awareness of one's emotional state, all are important skills for relating to patients.
