The Beauty of Horses

EAT, Equine Assisted Therapy, is a treatment that uses equine activities to help people who struggle with autism, trauma, behavioral issues, ADD, depression, and other mental health issues. I have always loved horses. Growing up I felt a strong, unexplainable connection to them, similar to the way I feel about dogs. I didn’t know at the time that they were therapeutic animals, but I felt it. I use to work with special needs kids and I used to take one of them to EAT sessions in Will Rodgers State Park.
