The art therapy will assist participants to reflect on their experiences with the horses, identify their feelings and emotions, the focus will be on the personal meaning that each participant finds within their creative work. Overall combining horses and art creates a full bodied life changing postive experience.
The dates for the four session program will be announced at the end of April.
