Eagala equine-assisted therapy
Experience growth and life changing outcomes.
Eagala is the global standard for equine assisted psychotherapy and personal development. The Eagala Model incorporates horses and their special intuition for helping you heal, discover, learn and grow from the horse-human relationship.
Program in action
The Eagala model is a program that interacts with horses on the ground with no riding involved. We take a ‘team approach’ to experiential learning, by working with a Mental Health Professional, Equine Specialist, Horses and the client using standards of practice and a strict ethical code. Our facilitator is skilled at working with you to grow personally. Eagala offers a truly unique approach to exploring and making changes in your own life, while being supported.

how we use horses
Did you know horses are intelligent animals and highly sensitive to their environments? They are able to instinctively analyse and react to human body language and other nonverbal cues. Horses are able to provide us with invaluable insights about other areas of our lives. There is no riding involved. The Eagala Model is all about engaging with horses on the ground.
Clients are invited to process, reflect, learn and grow through their experiences and interactions with the horses. Eagala transforms lives by engaging people physically, socially and emotionally. We offer a different perspective that supports personal growth and behaviours more aligned to your needs and values.
who can participate?
Eagala Equine Assisted Therapy is available to anyone from 6 years and upwards. Eagala is facilitated by a trained Eagala specialist, an equine specialist and our trained horses. Sessions are available for individuals or groups.
