Youth, families and adults can experience mental and behavioral as well as spiritual and emotional growth through equine therapy at Hope Remains.

Equine therapy and therapeutic activities are useful for helping participants develop spontaneous and natural communication. Through these the natural reenactment of life experiences helps participants meet their goals, in a safe, therapeutic environment. These experiences happen while learning basic horsemanship skills (therapeutic activities) and during equine therapy sessions. By maintaining a safe emotional distance from people, equine therapy improves self-esteem, increases self-discipline, builds responsibility and teaches coping skills to participants attending the four core programs of Hope Remains. Mentoring, counseling and Bible study are central to Hope Remains equine therapeutic activities, all of which is offered in a nonjudgmental and accepting surrounding.

*Equine Therapy sessions are provided by licensed professional therapists and certified equine specialists that utilize the EAGALA model.
