Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) are based upon the Eagala model www.eagala.org .
We truly believe our visitors are most often the best person to determine the types of life changes they need to make in order to improve their quality of life. Through active ground work with the resident animals of Country Heart Farm our equine therapy team members will assist you in meeting your personally specified goals.
Our programs facilitate cognitive, physical and behavioral growth and rehabilitation. All programs at Country Heart Farm can be adapted to meet the individual needs of someone with a mental or physical disability.
Country Heart Farm provides a safe and secure judgement free zone in which our visitors learn and grow through personal CONNECTION and experience with our therapy herd.
The rhythmic soothing TOUCHbetween humans and animals is beneficial for both species. This type of interaction fosters an improvement in social, emotional and cognitive functioning. It can also reduce anxiety level, blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health.
It is the goal of Country Heart Farm to provide an opportunity by which both humans and animals may begin to HEAL on a social, emotional, cognitive, spiritual and or physical level.
There is no horseback riding experience or horsemanship skills required to participate in our programs.
