Mates 4 Mates equine therapy with a horse

Equine Therapy

Spending time in a safe, calm environment, learning basic horsemanship and developing a trusting relationship with a trained horse is proven to have a positive impact on mental and emotional wellbeing, particularly for those who are struggling with anxiety, depression and other emotional challenges.
The benefits of equine therapy include:
  • building trust and confidence
  • improving physical wellbeing
  • enhancing social skills
  • building confidence to open up and communicate
  • improving personal relationships.

Mates4Mates offers equine therapy programs for both individuals and couples in locations around Australia. 

 “Time and time again you hear about the benefits of Equine Therapy, but until you actually experience it – experience the connection you make between yourself and the horse; the emotional and the physical connection; until you’ve actually experienced that first-hand – words don’t really do it justice.” – a veteran on his experience in the Mates4Mates Equine Therapy Program.
