Youth, families and adults can experience mental and behavioral as well as spiritual and emotional growth through equine therapy at Hope Remains.
Equine therapy is useful for helping participants develop spontaneous and natural communication. It uses tools such as role play and the natural reenactment of life experiences to help participants meet their goals, in a safe, therapeutic environment. These experiences happen while learning basic horsemanship skills. 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 therapy, all of which is offered in a nonjudgmental and accepting surrounding.
