HEALING HORSES
Equine Assisted Therapy

The concept of Healing Horses is based on a synthesis of physiotherapy, psychology, encounter therapy, bodywork, healing pedagogy and many more.

Therapeutic riding - as a complete experience-oriented concept - affects all the senses and many areas of life.

 

The focus is on individual support for the child/youth/adult, through the various possible applicability of the horse.

 

Here, the main activity does not stop with riding and assisted riding, but also covers work with the horse from the ground, group and movement games, as well as partner exercises, relaxation and perception on top - and through - the horse.

Therapeutic pedagogical support through horses is primarily based on the needs of children/adolescents/adults for fundamental experiences such as carrying, warmth, closeness, relationships and the desire for movement and the need for own actions.

Therapeutic riding includes a wide variety of methods such as systemic awareness, social group work, experiential pedagogy, play, nature experience and animal pedagogy.
