At HopeHealth’s equine therapy group, you’ll be given the opportunity to interact with and observe trained therapy horses from the ground. Horses are highly sensitive to human emotions. They mirror our feelings and provide us with feedback and insight about ourselves when we work with them. Interactions with these gentle and intuitive creatures can rebuild trust and help us process difficult emotions in a non-verbal way. We encourage all participants to dress warmly in layered clothing.
