What is Equine Facilitated Therapy?
Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT) encompasses a range of treatments that involve activities with horses to promote physical and mental health. EFT does not necessarily involve riding the horse but may include grooming, feeding, and ground exercises. Your Therapist work with one or more clients and one or more horses in a manner to help the clients learn about themselves and others while processing or discussing the client’s feelings and behaviors.
Meet Jennifer Krause, LMSW, Equine Facilitated Therapist
