Join our Fjord Horses for
a special day of Equine Assisted Wellness!
Sunnyside Farms is very excited to open its gates to integrated health. We are fostering partnerships with local behavioral health specialists to provide a method of integrative health called Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). EAP combines a licensed therapist, a horse specialist and horses (in this case the most special Sunnyside Fjord Horses) who work together with clients to address various individual psychotherapy treatment goals. This unique method enables clients to learn about themselves and others by actually participating in activities with the horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors and patterns.
The presence of our Fjord Horses is considered “therapeutic” in itself, since they are dynamic and powerful living beings. There’s also a healing bond that can develop between humans and horses. EAP utilizes these relationships with the horse as a tool to mirror client’s experiences and facilitate change. Sunnyside has the special horses to provide these connections and Wendy Bauwens is the equine specialist to facilitate it.
If your wellness program is in need of a fresh approach, look no longer! We can help!
