Why Equine Therapy Works

Our acclaimed Equine Therapy Program connects clients with horses to help them better understand themselves and how they interact with and perceive the world around them. Led by one of the nation’s most respected Equine Therapists, Dale Phillips, our innovative program has created life changing experiences for a countless number of clients on their journey to lasting recovery. Clients are able to benefit greatly from this form of experiential therapy because horses have a natural ability to respond to and reflect the emotional state of the people they are working with. Through the non-judgmental relationship they develop with the horses, and one-on-one care provided by Bluff's world-class equine therapist, our clients begin to recognize many of their own destructive behavioral patterns, insecurities, and fears while learning how to develop healthy communication, trust, and relationship building skills.

Equine Therapy Addresses Underlying Issues

It is very common for clients to have a history of trauma, a confused sense of personal identity, fears of inadequacy, unmet needs for unconditional love, and many other underlying issues when they begin our Equine Therapy Program. By creating a safe space where vulnerability is encouraged, clients discover a sense of acceptance that allows them to express their feelings openly without fear of judgment. This supportive environment helps clients recognize and overcome some of the psychological and emotional barriers that have prevented them from confronting the underlying issues that have contributed to their dysfunctional behaviors and dependence on drugs as a coping mechanism.

Benefits Of Equine Therapy

Our equine therapy program focuses on helping clients rebuild their confidence and self-worth, which plays a significant role in empowering them to take control over their addiction and finally feel like they deserve to live a better life. Our clients gradually begin to connect with feelings they have seemingly lost through their suffering from addiction such as trust and responsibility, which enables them to communicate their needs, establish healthier relationships, and take accountability for their own lives in a proactive way. Through our group therapy sessions, clients learn to value the importance of diversity, support, and teamwork---gaining practical skills they can apply to better communicate and relate to others on their path to recovery.
