Have you ever ‘herd’ about Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)?
- Did you know that EAP is a powerful experiential approach to resolving issues caused by severe trauma?
- Did you know that EAP is a successful adjunct/alternative to talk therapy, offering some immediate results?
- Did you know that EAP is so effective that it is applied as a short-term treatment intervention?
- Did you know that EAP is now available in your area?
If you answered NO to any of the above and you are curious, we will show how horses provide powerful coping skills for trauma survivors, especially those who don’t want to “talk about it”. There will be four separate demos with horses to illustrate: Intro to EAP, Military PTSD, At Risk Youth, and Childhood Bereavement and related issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, loss/grief, emotional triggers and more.
COME JOIN US!
Why: EAP is a fast growing field with marked results, yet because of its new-ness many people are unaware of how it works and why it is so effective. We offer demonstrations to show the horses in action and to allow interested parties the chance to experience this innovative approach to solving problems; creatively, effectively, and quickly. So if you are curious, save the date and join us. Did you ever think that the missing link to solving some of life’s most complex problems just might be…a Horse!?

Our next event at the farm with the horses present will not take place until Spring 2015 at our 2nd Annual Spring Festival Fundraiser & EAP Open House Demo. Dates will be posted late winter.
*Hay! Do you Ride, Train or Compete with Horses? If you have any used tack or show clothes that are still in great condition, please consider donating items to our Used Tack Drive. We can trade in tack & apparel in exchange for feed /supplements for the horses which opens more funding towards programming costs. DIK receipts will be issued for estimated used value.
