Equine Assisted Workshops are designed for veterans returning from active duty or past conflicts. Horses can be effective intermediaries in communication, as they demonstrate an authenticity in their body language and actions. Facilitators highlight moment-to-moment awareness of body language for both horses and participants, in order to create a trusting and understanding relationship. Participants can learn to identify the importance of presence, consistency and honesty and how these can affect interactions between horses and people. All exercises take place on the ground -- there is no riding involved.
