  • Use the EAGALA model to facilitate sessions

  • Facilitated by a treatment of an accredited therapist and experienced equine specialist 

  • These can be a powerful intervention, where a personal development session can soon become a Psychotherapy session, so it is vital to have a accredited therapist and experienced equine specialist, to manage the wellbeing of client(s) and horses
