Equine-facilitated psychotherapy [EFP]
is a form of experiential therapy that includes horses, and provides clients with opportunities to enhance self-awareness and re-pattern maladaptive behaviors, feelings and attitudes. EFP has proven beneficial for those managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD and Autism; and those affected by trauma, abuse or chronic illness.

Equine-assisted learning [EAL] is an experiential approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through equine-assisted activities. In an EAL setting, the experiential approach integrates equine-human interaction that is guided by a planned learning experience to meet the identified goals or desires of the participant(s).
