Programs with Equine Assisted
The focus of equine-assisted activities is not riding or horsemanship. Horses offer opportunities for experiential
emotional growth and learning. As herd animals, horses are highly sensitive to the emotions of those around them
and mirror those emotions through non-verbal communication such as pinned ears and swishing tails. Our activities require
the client or group to apply certain skills to tasks involving the horses. At Pinnacle Ranch certified professionals
work with the clients and horses to identify potential growth areas and establish treatment goals.
