Equine-Assisted Therapy

Equine-assisted therapy, is a powerful intervention for individuals with severe neuro-divergence. The presence of horses in therapeutic settings can provide a unique and profound experience for these individuals. The nonverbal nature of interactions with horses can be particularly beneficial, allowing for a form of communication that transcends language barriers and cognitive limitations. Through activities such as grooming, leading, and riding, individuals can develop a sense of accomplishment, improve self-esteem, and enhance their emotional and social skills.

Furthermore, the rhythmic and repetitive movements that are natural to a horse, can have a calming effect on individuals. The physical act of riding can help improve balance, coordination, and muscle strength, while also providing sensory input that can be regulating for those with sensory processing issues. Additionally, the bond that forms between a horse and individual can be a source of comfort and companionship, which is especially important for individuals who may struggle with social interactions.

Overall, equine-assisted therapy offers a holistic approach to addressing the needs of severely neuro-divergent individuals, addressing physical, emotional, and social aspects of their well-being.

My son, now 12 years, joined Mirrabelles classes in Natural Horsemanship 2 years back. First he was reluctant, like he is to any additional afternoon programs. He is rather chatty and lives in his mind, and doesnt want to be obliged to follow what I feel is good for him.

I saw the progress in self confidence, and opening up emotionally within 2 weeks. Since now nearly 2 years, his twice weekly Natural Horsemanship classes with "his pony" and Mirrabelle is his favorite activity, and he is always sure to be on time to go! He has changed a lot, is so much more aware emotionally, and developed a keen observation of the living beings around him. All with just 1 pony!  and Mirrabelles very professional guidance
