The herd hanging out a winter morning #equinetherapy #horses #minidonkeys
You will almost always leave with animal hair/fur on your clothing and smelling like a horse (the smell really grows on you!). As a result, please wear clothing that is comfortable, easy to launder, and appropriate for the weather conditions and I always recommend layers and/or bringing a shell, coat, hat etc.to ensure that you are able to stay present and engaged throughout your session. Consider gloves even in the warmer months if you don't want your hands to get dirty.
Proper footwear is essential! Closed toes shoes only. No sandals or flip flops are allowed at any time.
Each session is unique and designed with your needs and preferences in mind while ensuring the welfare of both you and the animals. I or an equine specialist will be supervising all activities and interactions to support honest and regulated interactions.
You will be near and often touching, sometimes even moving the horses during session. You may be sitting in a chair or on the ground, standing, or moving around. .You may be engaged in a hands on, experiential activity with the horses or observing the herd as you work for greater insight, health, and healing.
