Do I need to have horse experience to participate in this therapy?

No, you don't need to have experience with horses to participate in this therapy. You do need to come with an open mind and be prepared to try something new. You do not have to be in the same paddock as the horses if you are not comfortable with this. The sessions will progress at a pace that you set, it is a client centred practice, and nothing happens unless you agree to it. You will be working with counsellors who are also qualified equine handlers.

We have horses of all sizes, you may feel more comfortable working with our small pony Ziggy to start with. He's playful and can be stubborn, so there can be much learned from working with him.

At Equilibrium Therapies Australia our mission is to provide individually tailored therapy that recognises the uniqueness of each client, to heal and empower them, using an intermodal approach incorporating Equine Assisted Therapy, Creative Arts therapies, counselling and mindfulness practices.
