About the Group

Public Description

The purpose of this group is to centralize and exchange information about equine assisted interventions including but not limited to:

Equine Assisted Therapy, Equine Facilitated Therapy, Equine Assisted Counseling, Equine Assisted Learning & Equine Assisted Psychotherapy

A database already exists for this sector and includes 1) Facilities – providing some form of equine assisted activity for youth development 2) Research – peer reviewed papers and studies and 3) Tools for measuring outcome – assessments, surveys and tests.

In order to effectively promote the value of equine assisted interventions, we must pool our resources and move this therapeutic modality from experimental to evidence-based practice.
