Service description:
The Equine Assisted Therapy Association (EquATA) is an alternative education provision that offers horse-assisted therapy to children and young people with mental health problems or social issues.

They aim to provide a safe place (within beautiful surroundings) for young people to learn everyday life skills they can use in the outside world. EquATA’s horse-assisted therapy:

   •  assists with the treatment of behavioural disorders
   •  promotes self-esteem, independence and self confidence
   •  improves observation skills, co-ordination and communication
   •  encourages nurturing traits and so helps reduce anti-social behaviour
   •  promotes a sense of responsibility and empathy with others, encouraging teamwork
   •  combats loneliness and encourages social integration
   •  reduces stress and encourages mobility
   •  promotes a healthy wellbeing through self-expression

EquATA offer ‘Horsing Around’ therapy for children and young people with ASD.
