Equine Assisted Therapy
Children - Adolescents - Adults
Horses have a special ability to help people work through emotional barriers without judgement or shame. It is said, "An hour with a horse is equivalent to 4 hours on the couch."
Providence takes special interest in children and adolescents struggling with:
- Oppositional Defiance
- Social Anxiety
We have had great success working with kids struggling with many different social, personal and family challenges. We have found that kids connect and trust a horse quickly and completely. Giving them the opportunity to face life and its struggles with confidence and resilience.
Western & Trail Riding Lessons
Our aim is to cultivate the love of riding while building strong and correct HORSEMENSHIP skills. Learn to ride in an engaging and pressure-free environment for kids ages 8 to 80 with all experience levels.
Horse riding is a fun recreational activity, but it offers many intrinsic benefits for children and adults as well. From a physical development side, horse riding improves balance and motor coordination. Hand-eye coordination, core strength and muscular development also benefit from horse riding. In addition, horseback riding teaches patience, discipline, understanding, empathy, compassion, self-control, and dedication.
Students will learn:
* Saddling and bridling a horse
* Leading with a rope and halter
* Mounting a horse
* Riding - at a walk, a trot and a canter
Groups & Team Building
- Boys & Girls Clubs
- Recovery Centers
Team building is part of a psychological discipline called organizational psychology. It inspires groups of people such as executives, co-workers, families, youth groups, etc. to communicate through a series of planned events that are fun & motivational. These events can be used to determine strong points in an individual’s personality, such as leadership skills, detail skills or even social skills.
Each part of the team holds a vital role to the team as a whole. Team Building is way to recognize those individual skills and appreciate them to the benefit of the team.
MILITARY & FIRST RESPONDERS MATTER
"There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." John 15:13
"We have conducted a number of equine sessions. The men and women who participated tell me that never have they found a group or individual session to be so useful and life changing, and that they have found hope. After these workshops, many reflect frequently on the experience and skills learned then take these lessons into their daily lives."

We count on our military, police, firefighters, EMS workers and dispatchers to answer the call. The demands placed on them make them susceptible to high levels of stress, anxiety and trauma. Our veterans and first responders and the people who love them live through the horrors of war, death, separation from family and the kinds of challenging life adjustments that most will never experience or understand.
We, here at PHR, want to thank you who have answered the call. We are skilled, licensed and certified in Eagala, Equine Assisted Therapy and psychotherapy. Whatever the struggles may be, we are here to help.
