Recommended Readings

  • Equulibrium offers a transformational experience by which we attempt to find balance through the way of the horse. As prey animals guided by the fight or flight response, horses constantly go back to homeostasis. In contrast, human beings live not knowing how to revert back to that state of balance; depleting our organisms of energy, by remaining in constant state of prey mentality, honed by stress, lack of sleep, and competitive productivity.

     

  • How can it help you?

    is a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy in which a therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse as a treatment strategy to provide carefully graded sensory input.  Individualized treatment plans are established to improve neurological function, sensory processing and physical strength.  Improvements can be generalized to a wide range of daily activities including sports, classroom behavior, improved attention, and global strength.

  • Equine Assisted Therapy

    Who Qualifies?

    “My response to this is pretty simple. Anyone who can see me in my office can come out to the ranch.

    No horse experience is necessary.” Currently we are treating individuals with anxiety,  depression,

    relationship issues, ADHD, family dynamics difficulties, eating disorders, anger management difficulties,

    academic difficulties, etc. We also run children’s groups for “social skills”,   and  other specialty groups

    mentioned under the adult programs.

  • Women Support Group

    An Ongoing Group

    where women survivors of addiction and/or domestic abuse are able to partner up with our equines

    in order to improve their self esteem and self-confidence through activities with our horses.

    Participants learn the importance of  trust and respect, practice how to set boundaries and learn how

    to be assertive without being agressive.

Equine Services for Warriors

“Appreciating the power of the horse to change lives is our goal,” said PATH past President Dr. Paul Spiers, “and PATH wants to provide positive change for these very special lives. Our service personnel have fought to preserve our freedom, and, for many, at a very dear cost. We must be certain that if our wounded service personnel and veterans need and want this kind of help, they will get the best PATH has to offer.”

Equus for Humanity is a certified PATH center that offer Horses for Heroes programs and accepts TRICARE coverage.

PATH Horses for Warriors assists military veterans through services provided by PATH members and by providing leadership and guidance for equine assisted activities and therapies. Veterans of any age can benefit from the program and by being involved with equines.  Read More
