What is Equine-Assisted Therapy?

Equine-assisted learning and equine therapy for addiction recovery are very similar. Equine-assisted learning is a form of treatment that lets you work with horses to enhance emotional and physical healing during recovery. What takes place during your sessions will vary based on your needs. Arizona equine-assisted addiction treatment often takes place outdoors, where you can relax in a natural environment. 

Arizona equine-assisted addiction treatment involves work overseen by riding instructors where you care for the horses, interact with them, and ride them. Many facilities offer several levels of interactions, so you can build upon the skills you learn during each session.

Why Equine Based Addiction Recovery?

Arizona equine-assisted addiction treatment involves work overseen by riding instructors where you care for the horses, interact with them, and ride them. Many facilities offer several levels of interactions, so you can build upon the skills you learn during each session. 

Improved Physical Activity

Caring for and riding horses demands physical activity. You don’t need previous experience or any particular level of physical health to start your equine-assisted treatment. You will benefit from increased physical activity as you complete multiple sessions through the different levels. This helps you handle stress, improves your mood, and makes it easier for you to participate in the remainder of your daily therapeutic services.

Improved Relationships & Bonding

Bonding can be challenging after recovery, especially when interpersonal relationships may have suffered because of drug or alcohol abuse. Equally common are feelings of isolation and loneliness. You can overcome these feelings, improve your emotional state and boost your attachment capacity to animals and humans. 

When you work with a horse one-on-one, you have to pay close attention to subtle behavioral signs provided by horses. These nonverbal communications can offer insight into how the horse prefers you interact with them. Growing your knowledge of nonverbal communication can help you improve your ability to read humans as well as cultivate better bonds with people after recovery.

Building Emotional Intelligence

Research has found that there is an emotional transfer between humans and animals, which means that caring for a horse’s well-being can boost your emotional intelligence. With equine-assisted learning, you build trust with your animal, learn to control your impulses so that you can be mindful of what you are doing with the horse, and communicate non-verbally with the horse.

Natural Benefits

Many people benefit from equine-assisted learning because of the comfortable outdoor setting of our facility. Being in nature shows equal benefits, such as:

  • Improving socialization
  • Encouraging communication
  • Boosting boost

The desert’s natural green and red hues can boost your mood and creativity. You can reduce muscle tension and stress hormones by being outside. Participating outdoors with horses can help boost your immune system, encourage physical activity, and improve your sleep.

The benefits of equine experiences

How Equine-Assisted Therapy Aides Recovery

Equine-assisted learning is a chance to learn more about yourself and others through one-on-one sessions with horses. There are several ways this benefits you in recovery.

Developing Skills

Firstly, you acquire several skills as you learn to work with the horses. Many of these skills are mindful activities, such as:

  • Grooming horses
  • Saddling horses
  • Riding horses

A major challenge during recovery is to focus on your needs in the present. Too often, people struggling with substance abuse are overcome with anxiety or fear about the past and the future. These basic skills force you to stay focused on the present and be mindful of what you are doing. There isn’t room for other anxiety or feelings of isolation when you are responsible for grooming a horse.


In addition to the practical benefits of the skills, the mindfulness of caring for a horse can serve as a form of meditation, as can walking or riding the horse. Moving meditation is a common way to remain present and aware of how you feel at any given moment. Our facility offers multiple spiritual paths that you can walk throughout your state as well as paths you can ride with your horse. 

Focusing on the steady movement of the gallop or the trot, your breathing, the breathing of the animal, and the natural therapeutic environment in which you are riding can bring multiple meditative benefits like reducing anxiety, stress levels, and depression.

Therapeutic riding can help you heal from past trauma and boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. It’s a complementary treatment that can be used in addition to traditional talk therapy to help you take responsibility for identifying the roadblocks to your previous success.
