Emotional Regulation

The ability to exert control over one's own emotional state.  It may involve behaviors such as rethinking a challenging situation to reduce anger or anxiety, hiding visible signs of sadness or fear, or focusing on reasons to feel happy or calm.

Horses react strongly with our emotions.  We use equine assisted activities to help participants recognize their own emotional state and how others are responding to us.   

Mindfulness

The quality or state of being conscious or aware of the present moment and calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.

Horses help us to stay aware of our surroundings and keep an open mindset.  We use activities and strategies with the horses to assist with mindful breathing techniques and create intentional awareness in a non-judgmental setting.

Cognitive Thinking

The mental process involved in gaining knowledge and comprehension: thinking, knowing, remembering, and problem solving.  These mental functions encompass language, imagination, perception, and planning.

We use equine assisted activities to adopt a growth mindset, and improve ability to think, listen, learn, and understand.
