What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy? (Occupational Therapy Students Feedback)
The OTD, 710 Psychosocial students at Huntington University’s Occupational Therapy Program visited Summit Equestrian Farm in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to learn about EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) Programs. The students also learned how EAGALA Programs differ from Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding by being conducted on the ground only, with team facilitation (Horse, Horse Specialist, and MH Specialist). Equine Assisted Psychotherapy focuses on individuals/groups with mental health issues, while Equine Assisted Learning can be used to promote growth and learning experiences with individuals, organisational groups, and students. Watch how the Equine Assisted Learning Program shaped the perspective of two students.
