Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP)

Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Organizational Development &
Team Building

Horse in Stable

Horses have an amazing ability to read our nonverbal communication and adapt to hidden messages and emotions we put off. Growing evidence and research support Equine Assisted Psychotherapy's effectiveness, which Freedom Equine Connection provides through a team of certified, licensed professionals and horses.


The healing environment created by our team helps people process distressing or difficult emotions, thoughts, and behavioral patterns, often resulting in deep insights and improvement in overall mental well-being.


In addition to our mental health services, our team is equipped to help children of all ages overcome learning challenges through the Horse Powered Reading ® model. This approach combines all their senses to help children succeed in school and life.
