About Equine Enrichment
Equine Enrichment has been in business since 2012. Equine Enrichment supports people going through difficult stages of life such as grief, trauma or recovering from addiction. Horses are partners with the therapist to enable the client to find the deep truths of their situation and to then be able to work through Gestalt Methodology to complete individual pieces of the story. Horses are sensitive beings and for them to feel safe they will create opportunities for humans to become congruent, meaning that they will encourage the client bring forth what is already being felt in the body. It is a co-active relationship between the client, therapist and horse and we at Equine Enrichment believe that everyone has their own answers within, and the horse and therapists job is to support the client to find their answers. When personal work is done from the body to the brain, integration is that much easier.
