Equine therapy is an important tool in the multidisciplinary therapeutic repertoire of Sovereign Health as part of the treatment programs. Equine therapy has demonstrated effectiveness as a healing therapy in treating addiction, co-dependency issues, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and psychological and emotional issues such as depression, anxiety and anger management. In this video, a patient details his experiences with horses while undergoing treatment at Sovereign Health. Equine therapy helped him to come out of his shell and become more assertive. He found that interacting with a horse allowed him to open up better because the horses read people so well and react to whatever emotions they sense. He also enjoyed the grooming because he could tell the horses really enjoyed it, which made him feel like he had done his good deed for the day. The horses are rescue horses that have come from diverse backgrounds, which he could relate to as an addict. Equine therapy gave him a sense of connection from the beginning, which helped facilitate a bonding experience that provided an enjoyable therapeutic experience.
