If you have a group of eight or more and a facility we can work out of, we are open to adding new locations! Our next trip to the UK is planned for October 2022. UK trainings WILL count towards your certification requirements with Pro-EFW.
Through animals we can experience the grace to be … and the space to become …
You, or someone you love, may have experienced the world, relationships and perhaps even professionals as unsafe; it may have become safer to stop trusting, to stop feeling, to stop believing in yourself or in others.
Or perhaps it seems like you feel too much, and emotions become overwhelming in a world which doesn’t seem to understand.
You feel judged, scared and lonely. You don’t now where to turn or who to believe.
Animals love us unconditionally, they are always genuine and they feel what we feel.
Our trained therapy horses and other animals meet you where you are now. They don’t judge and they never lie. Our team can help you trust again; to deepen and secure your relationships with those you love – and with yourself;
to give you hope for a brighter tomorrow.
