Equine Therapy

Castlewood at The Highlands has teamed up with King's Stables to provide equine assisted therapy for our clients.

"At King's Stables, the horses are the teachers. Why horses? A horse's herd is its community, and the way they communicate with each other within their herd is similar to the way people communicate. Horses help teach people how to express feelings, handle problems, and open the lines of communication. Riders not only experience the joy a horse can bring, but also work on skills such as balance, strength, independence, and coordination. Working with these beautiful animals is empowering and esteem building ~ plus it's fun!"
