    Nice interview. I would add that for any clinician looking to add this modality to their tool kit that they go through a national program (EAGALA, PATH)and get certified. It is very important that the right horses are choosen for their program needs and that all clinicians have full liability insurance.

    Growing up with horses, I can attest to their “therapeutic” nature. Good interview.

    Thanks Claire and Pam for sharing this. Horses certainly have some amazing qualities. It’s wonderful that more are getting exposed to their nature and nurture through equine assisted therapy. While we’re not a facility that provides this (our primary activity is horse training for clients who ride) we do have a bus come out each year from an area assisted living center. It’s incredible to witness how accommodating and careful the horses are with these folks – and how delighted the residents are to take part in such an outing. It must be extremely rewarding to introduce challenged people to horses for the first time year-round.
