Horses have survived for thousands of years due to resilience, instinct, and adaptation. Equine assisted interventions are designed to improve those exact skills by allowing horses to heal the mental wounds through natural interactions with participants. Equine assisted activities and therapy allows for participants to watch and partake in herd dynamics by taking over the role of the lead horse. This encourages a deeper understanding of social cues and enables the individual with an opportunity to respond without fear of being mocked or criticized. Having an outlet such as this also allows for individuals to apply skills learned in a supportive and socially conducive environment.
The mission of Dogwood Wellness Group is to meet our clients where they are through the development of equestrian skills in a kind and supportive environment to improve confidence, self-worth, and overall mental well-being. Each client is treated as an individual with respect to their background, identified goals, and desired path forward.
