Equine Communication


Have you ever wondered what horses are thinking? We offer classes here at "Healing With Horses" at WildRose Horse Farm that will teach you how to read equine body language which will make you aware of not only horse body language it will teach you human body language as well. Observe the hierachy of the herd. Interact with the horses verbally and through body language. This class will not only enlighten you, it will be an unimaginable experience. Learn what horses are saying to each other just by their body language, the unspoken language, position of ears, nostrils, eye contact and the way they move. Learning body language of the horse is imperative to bonding with a horse and is helpful when riding in any Therapeutic Lesson Program. Call to register for this Exceptional Class which has been written about in "The Day" newspaper and "Montville Times". Contact the office for enrollment.

We offer "Saviors For Survivors" for PTSD including Trauma of any kind. Equine assisted therapy is effective for veterans and other survivors of trauma. Survivors tend to avoid talking about those memories that are so painful. The emphasis of this therapy is to learn to pick up non verbal cues. Working with horses teaches the participant to relax and adapt to behaviors through body language with horses. To our youth trust can be a huge factor. This program begins with caring and grooming. It helps teens to care for a horse by studying safety, respect and horse behavior. With that teens become aware of their own feelings and how they affect others through working with the horse. Eventually teens learn to love and trust their equine friends. A Mentor will work with teens and assist them with learning to trust and bond with the horse. This unparalleled program is available all year round with Certified Professionals. Call with any questions, concerns or needs prior to intake appoitment. These individualized classes are unprecedented and updated by an EAAT professional who will indivdualize a program specifically for the teens situation can be facilitated through un-mounted programs.
