Horse Sense

Equine Therapy Program

We are committed to help humans and horses alike, and we believe in the powerful effect of mutual healing through the human-horse relationship. This scientifically proven therapy model is based on the unique qualities of the horse to sense and react to human emotions.

The horses’ way of reacting to our emotions and body language is always immediate, honest, non-judgmental and benevolent.
