Equine Guided Therapy

June 24th, 2020

Abraxas Ohio recently had a two day program to kick off another season of Equine Guided Therapy.

Hobby Horse Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center teamed up with Abraxas staff and youth at our Shelby, Ohio campus. Abraxas students were introduced to several different horses, including two miniature horses trained as therapy horses. The kids brushed, pet and feed the horses. After getting acquainted with their horse, they worked with their horse in the round pen and learned how to achieve “join up”. This is the second year for this partnership with Hobby Horse Hill. It has provided a wonderful opportunity for our kids to learn to connect with and care for an animal, while learning a lot about themselves in the process.
