Equine Assisted/Animal Assisted Therapy Programs:At Country Heart Farm the majority of our equine and animal assisted therapy activities are based upon the EAGALA framework www.eagala.org . Our adaptive riding program also incorporates elements of the PATH model.
Country Heart Farm provides a safe and secure judgement free zone in which our visitors can learn and grow through personal CONNECTION and experience with our therapy herd. The rhythmic TOUCHbetween a human and animal can be beneficial for both species. This type of interaction fosters an improvement in social. emotional and cognitive functioning. It can also reduce 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 or physical level.
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. Trough 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.
There is no horseback riding or horsemanship skills required to participate in our programs.
Together we can make a difference in the Lives of Many ...one person or animal at a time
