THS recognizes the benefit of Equine Assisted Learning and would like to bring the benefits of that service to those in need. THS partners with local mental health professionals to provide the therapeutic horses and the equine specialist necessary for successful equine assisted learning services.
What is EAL?
THS therapy horses offer individuals engaged in mental health therapy a complimentary modality to experience a pure and nonjudgmental relationship.
While anyone who has experienced Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) will tell you the experience can be life-changing and powerful, research is needed to explore the ways in which this type of intervention is beneficial for adults and children with emotional struggles.
Individual and Family EAL Services
EAL services allow individuals to connect with another living and emotionally intuitive being without risk of rejection or criticism. For those who have experienced trauma or have been in painful relationships, it can be difficult to open up and express their feelings. EAL can serve as a first step in helping individuals break through these barriers and become more comfortable and productive in the healing process.
Team Building Services
Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga partners with ECS Psychological Services to provide team building opportunities to local businesses, school classes, sports teams, and organizations. The collaboration of these entities means that people are provided with a service by master’s level trained counselors, equine specialists, and retired racehorses working their second career as therapy horses.
Military and Veteran Services
Therapeutic Horses of Saratoga, Inc. is an organization that supports our troops. We encourage local providers to utilize our horses to provide EAL services to Active Duty and National Guard military members, Reservists, Veterans and their families.
THS has joined forces with ECS Psychological Services, P.C. to increase Veteran access to equine-assisted learning services in the local community.
