Equine-Assisted Personal Development (EAPD) is about creating metaphors for real life through equine interactions. In an EAPD session, clients interact with horses 'at liberty' (free) in an enclosed area. Thought provoking exchanges between client and consultant occur as the client performs simple activities with the horse.

Participants tell us that they gained much more out of these activities than they ever imagined…

"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man."
