TRANSFORMATIVE EQUINE AND EXPERIMENTAL THERAPIES THAT CREATE LIGHT BULB MOMENTS

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Welcome to EquiShui!

 

At EquiShui,  we are creating a culture of connection by bringing people to an environment that heals, nurtures and supports renewal and connection.

 

We provide Equine-assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), Equine-assisted learning (EAL) and other experiential learning programs that provide a unique, creative, and fun learning environment for developing life skills like team-building, resilience, self-care and confidence. Horses have been proven to be uniquely successful for psychotherapy, as they respond to and mirror human behavior. By fostering a special connection with our horses, we teach the importance of trust, awareness, and patience.
