We are happy to announce a new partnership with Integrative Life Center in Nashville, TN.  This is the first of our Professional Series offered to the mental health community.  Workshop will be led by Dede Beasley and Becky Bauer. Co-sponsored by The Sage Horse and ILC.

A Journey Through Equine Assisted Psychotherapy – Professional Series

This worksop is designed for those in the mental health field who would like to become more familiar with Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and learn how to integrate it into their practice.

Discussion and Hands-On Activities with Horses Will Cover:

  • Experiential Learning With The Horse
  • Why Horses and People Together – Exercises That Reveal Herd Dynamics
  • Safety & Horsemanship, Dynamics of Safety
  • Language and Therapy, Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication and Behavior
  • Sacred Space Between You and the Horse
  • Detachment and Levels of Dependency
  • Relationship Dynamics With Horses and People
  • Experiential Processing and Awareness

Equine therapy allows us to revisit the past and create a new future. Experiential therapy is not about the task, but about processing, being in the moment, tuning into oneself and creating positive change.
