Equine assisted therapy is an extremely powerful form of experiential therapy. Working with and caring for the horses allows your daughter to bypass the walls that have prevented her from achieving her full potential. Getting beyond those walls will help your daughter to see her problems clearly and move past them.
It’s not uncommon for children and teenagers to experience issues with anger, empathy, emotional awareness, social skills and more. This is why we utilize equine therapy to help young girls. The use of equine assisted therapy can help your daughter work through issues, overcome challenges and act like her true self.
While at the ranch, the girls will participate in grooming, feeding and riding, and leading horses while supervised by our professionals. While with the horses, mental health professionals are observing the girls’ behavior patterns and helping them process their thoughts, emotions, and actions. As your daughter works with the horses at Renewed Hope Ranch, she will get outside of herself and gain greater empathy and compassion, self-discipline and self-respect, and patience and commitment to the things that matter most.
Equine therapy will help your daughter to create and maintain healthy relationships. She will learn how to appropriately set boundaries with the horse which in turn will help her to be appropriately assertive with setting boundaries with her friends.
Our horses and staff are excited and ready to meet and help your daughter. You can even meet our equine friends here on our website! For more information on our residential treatment center for girls, or equine therapy, contact us today!
