Equine Facilitated Interactions at Athena Herd Foundation
Equine Facilitated Interactions
Authenticity and attention to the whole health and well-being of the Athena Herd horses. This is what makes the Equine Facilitated Interactions (including Equine Facilitated Learning and Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy) experiences here at the Athena Herd Foundation unique. Jennifer Geach strives to build meaningful relationships and connections with the Athena Herd Foundation horses. For instance, we really observe and listen to their needs and choices. Moreover, this has also been the case with all of the horses that have made up Athena Herd over the years. We really look to gain a better understanding and insight into their individual needs and choices. This journey is what took Jennifer on this path. Looking at what is, for example, Equine Facilitated Learning, Equine Assisted Learning, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy, Occupational Therapy, healing with horses. Subsequently, Jennifer went on to join courses offered by various training providers. Jennifer also, for example, actively participates in the Equine Assisted & Facilitated Practitioners Network and Conferences.
“We have all had to manage our lives with Covid, and the online course exceed expectations in terms of course delivery and student participation. Option to always spend time with the Athena Herd (at no extra cost) helped to really understand Athena facilitators, the Herd, and the track system. Sharing our life/horse experiences as fellow students was diverse, insightful, and rewarding. For an ‘Online Course’ it was highly engaging, inclusive, and professional. Tbh it exceeded my expectations :)”
“Knowledge, new experiences, and feeling part of an actual community of talented EFL/EFP peoples. The desire to continue with the Diploma and develop my craft/business with confidence in the next months. CONFIDENCE :)”
“The instruction was superior to the professional courses I have attended before”
