Horse Speak for Equine Therapy Centers

Meeting the Emotional Needs of Horses

In this course, Sharon focuses on how we can use Horse Speak to help prepare and support horses who work in the world of equine assisted therapy.

You will learn specific enrichment procedures and techniques that offer horses the same emotional empathy we are asking them to provide to therapy clients.

When we use the word "enrichment" we are talking about adding emotional value to a horse's life. Enriching activities meet the emotional needs of horses and help them develop a feeling of well-being, which they can then share with their riders.

This course includes a 90 minute video presentation, a study guide, a quiz and links to additional resources.
