Meet Our Herd
CORRAL uses equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) because it removes the power dynamic of an adult versus child and allows our girls to focus on their relationship with their horses. A Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor is an essential piece of ethical EAP practices. Our therapists use a trauma-focused approach to building relationships by helping the girls learn and apply new skills with their horses, such as seeking attention healthily, establishing boundaries, and demonstrating assertiveness.
Our horses are all rescues. The beauty behind this is that all of them, just like our girls, have experienced some sort of trauma, which means the relationship between the horse and the girl is a two-way street. They’re able to heal together and learn they can be made whole again.
