Horses are sentient beings that have a connection with people that goes back through the centuries. They are non-judgemental and have no expectations or hidden agendas. A horse operates in the here and now and responds immediately and honestly to what is happening in their environment and is expert in reading non-verbal signals and body-language. It is these qualities that make them so valuable in the therapy programme. Unlike other animals they mirror human emotions, intent and body language and expose incongruence that may arise and provide vast opportunities for metaphorical learning.
The power of horses to influence people in positive ways has been long recognised. They are large and powerful, so that by accomplishing tasks involving horses, people overcome their fears and gain greater confidence in dealing with intimidating and challenging situations in their lives. Engaging in activities with horses provides an opportunity for people to explore and develop their strengths thus improving self-awareness and confidence.
Equine Alliance offers programmes for:
Both for non-horse owners and for those who would like to gain a deeper understanding and relationship with themselves and their horse.

The riding programmes include flatwork/dressage and jumping.
The benefits of equine assisted therapy and learning are:
