Welcome to Grab the Reins: Equine Assisted Growth and Learning.
Equine Assisted Growth and Learning is a dynamic complement/alternative to traditional therapy, using horses as part
of the therapeutic and learning process. In an interactive process, a mental health professional and
equine specialist guide individuals, groups and families through activities designed to develop problem-solving skills, improve teamwork,
promote effective communication, identify leadership potential, strengthen relationships, and develop self-esteem.
Activities occur on the ground - and are not riding lessons. Rather, activities focus on completing tasks using
horses as partners in the process. The activities and interactions require thinking, planning, and collaboration.
They generate feelings and behaviors that parallel experiences in other areas of life. The process of the activity encourages
us to see behaviors, develop alterantives strategies, and experience success.
