Equine Therapy is an experiential approach for personal and professional development. Relating to horses in their natural environment can bring us profound insight & connection. We are based in North Cumbria, close to the Scottish Borders at Denton Hall Farmhouse, Low Row, Brampton, near Carlisle, Cumbria.
This approach uses activities on the ground with horses to express and explore emotional issues. Horses tap into the unconscious and can be powerful metaphors for life. In a session the horses may become part of the participant’s story.
How does this work? For example if a person is afraid, horses may respond by moving close to them and creating a protective barrier. As the person reaches out to touch the horses this helps them to soothe and transform their fear.
An adolescent that believes no one can help him, refuses to go into the arena and turns his back on the horses. A horse comes up and pulls the corner of his hoodie. He decides to turn round and stroke the horse.
