Horses provide a tool for physical therapy, emotional growth, and cognitive improvement, in a unique format that is fun, exhilarating, and sometimes has the power to change a person's perspective on life!

The contact with the animal is a powerful experience, and the strong bond that is sometimes experienced  has a profound, uplifting effect on people. Communication with horses is all about us developing  and refining our ability to communicate through intention, body language, energy and feel.

Hippotherapy (Rocklea)

Physiotherapy on the horseback.
