Heal With Horses Therapeutic Centre's Quinte West Location works with neuro-diverse and neuro-typical youth and adults
We use horses as the therapist and utilize the horses' ability to live in the moment, take direction, and work as a team.
Equine assisted therapy can help individuals living with trauma learn to trust again and find confidence in their voice by communicating verbal and physical commands to the horse
For clients who live with Autism, FASD, Tourette's, ADHD, and other diagnoses, being able to give the horse verbal and physical commands helps to improve cognitive, language, motor, social skills
