VTEA Recreational Therapeutic Equine Experience for Front Line Heroes

Front Line HeroesValley Therapeutic has created the Front Line Heroes Program, a Recreational Therapeutic Equine Experience that aims to provide relief to front line workers from the mental stress and anxiety they experience working on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of equine therapy is to enhance the quality of life for riders by improving their physical, mental, and emotional well being with the help of highly trained, empathetic therapy horses. These equine assisted activities can play a significant role in alleviating stress, anxiety and depression relating to trauma.

This one-hour session with one of our therapy horses, and under the guidance of a CanTRA certified instructor, will work on stress and anxiety reduction using breathing and mindfulness techniques as well as stretching exercises to release tension. The cost of the session is $60. To find out more about this Experience, click here for What You Can Expect (PDF).
