  • 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.

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

What types of problems do we treat?

    Currently we are treating individuals with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, ADHD, family dynamics difficulties, eating disorders, anger management difficulties, academic difficulties, etc.

    We run children’s groups for “social skills” where children don’t necessarily have to ride the horses; the activities are geared to develop team building, empathy, compassion, social reciprocity, strengthen self-esteem, develop coping mechanisms, and enhance responsibility. These groups range in ages from 5 to 12 years old.

What about Autism?

    Because we are the only facility in south Florida that offers both hippotherapy and EAP under the same roof, we offer a program that addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of the child with autism.
    At Equulibrium, we look at the whole child, not just the symptoms. Many of the children with autism have behavioral issues as well as sensory dysfunction issues. We understand the importance of language and communication, and how cognition develops in children, we also know that a child who is seeking sensory input or output has a difficult time relating to the world;
therefore we apply our interventions with the aim of enabling development in all areas.
