“Horses understand what we are trying to do. They are in agreement with it. They understand our hopes, prayers, and dreams. Horses understand these songs.”
Rudy Shebala (Navajo)
Because a horse can not lie, working with horses creates opportunities for us to be honest with others and ourselves. An initial step in transforming a life is honesty. A Delta is a horse or person who strives to live in a state of peace, harmony, balance, and justice. To make such a life possible, a Delta uses “power” for the good of all. This “power” is not aggressive, destructive, controlling or possessive, but transforms the individual or collective body to gain liberty and freedom from that which threatens to destroy the mind, body, and spirit.
The life of a Delta is characterized by P.A.C.E. Patience with others and self; Acceptance of others and self; Consistency in behavior across all settings; and, Empathy in action with a purpose. Dare to be a Delta!
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a solution-focused, strengths-based model that incorporates horses experientially to promote emotional growth and learning. It is a collaborative effort between a licensed mental health clinician and an equine specialist working with participants and horses to address treatment goals.
There is a growing interest in equine therapy supporting the psychological health and relationships of Service Members, Veterans, EMT, Fire and Police. The horses are
able to show us where our weak link resides in the stress chain and as natural teachers are helpful in reminding us how to effectively put to use the skill sets we already possess but may have ignored, forgotten, or discredited in the past.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) focuses on aquiring specific skills or meeting educational goals as defined by the individual or group. Some examples are improved product sales for a company, leadership skills for a school group, or resiliency training for a military group. EAL still involves the team of mental health clinician and
equine specialist working with the participants and horses. .
