Woman with Horse during Equine Therapy

Healing with Horses

Did you know horses have the ability to sense and mirror our emotions?

In partnership with EQUI-KIDS, Sentara is proud to offer Equine Therapy to help patients rebuild a sense of confidence and perspective, while providing a sense of comfort.

During Equine Therapy, participants can groom, lead and observe Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy-trained horses. Do note no actual horseback riding takes place during these sessions.
We hope you’ll join us and experience the wonderful sense of connection and comfort horses can provide.
