Horse Sense Announces New Collaboration
with SUWS of the Carolinas!

The SUWS Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP) Program through Horse Sense of the Carolinas follows the EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning) Model. At SUWS, equine activities are set up and facilitated by one of our master’s level licensed mental-health professionals and the support of a horse professional from Horse Sense. It includes a minimum of 6 hours per stay for each student. The activities have a team therapeutic approach and are performed on the ground (rather than riding), which include such things as grooming, haltering and leading the hor se. During the process of working with the horse, the therapist and student engage in discussion, processing feelings, behaviors and patterns. Interactions with the horses are controlled, and are done for specific reasons. The ultimate goal for the student is to build skills such as personal responsibility, assertiveness, non-verbal communication, self-confidence, and self-control.
