YO HORSE! PROGRAM
The YO Horse! program provides support, therapeutic intervention, and physical activity through a 12-week Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) program. Young offenders and their families can develop skills in psychological resilience, self regulation, and anger management through their interaction with horses.
One of the most compelling components of Equine Assisted Therapy is the opportunity to form positive bonds and attachments. The horse responds to participants - without judgement - and provides opportunities to discover self, regulation, and then can build meaningful relationships. Attachment is essential to empower young offenders in building healthy and functional relationships based on trust, respect, and understanding ... essential elements to healing.
