Relationships can both harm and heal

We all have experienced some level of difficulty, pain and even trauma. The loss of a loved one, abuse, an accident or events we could not control. Those emotional scars can be difficult to overcome, and the impact of unresolved issues changes the way we live and our ability to identify and engage in healthy ways.


Sometimes, the emotional damage alters our brain, leading us to repeat undesirable and harmful choices.

Those patterns can be changed, and healing can happen through trauma-focused equine assisted psychotherapy and learning. Connecting with horses teaches our clients how to

engage in relationships that are respectful, kind and loving; where both parties needs are recognized and met.  

As Tim Jobe, co-founder of Natural Lifemanship TF-EAP says: "What's good for the horse is good for the person, what's good for the person is good for the horse."
