I am not sure how I or my child will react around a horse.

We use equine assisted activities and therapy (EAAT) techniques within a behavioural therapy approach, resulting in our unique, evidence-based programs. We chose horses as our co-facilitators for their calming effect on the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). If you are unsure how you or your child will react around a horse, before committing to a full program, we recommend either an Individual Session or one of our Sensory Sessions. We also welcome enquiries from NDIS Support Co-ordinators
