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.

  • 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
