Trauma Informed Equine Assisted Learning

Our sessions at Healing on Manes are thoughtfully designed for a one-on-one experience, providing undivided attention from our dedicated practitioner, Heather, and our incredible equine partner. This personal approach ensures that each program is tailored to your specific needs, offering complete focus and support throughout the journey.

It's a unique opportunity to foster growth and healing, with unwavering guidance every step of the way.

At Healing on Manes, we want to clarify that all our activities are currently conducted exclusively on the ground. We do not offer riding experiences; instead, our approach centers around the fundamental principles of equine groundwork. Groundwork is the cornerstone of establishing strong and trusting relationships with our equine partners. 

It's essential to note that while our programs focus on mental health goals, particularly in the areas of communication, relationship building, and emotional well-being, we do not provide psychotherapy. I am not a licensed mental health clinician. Our approach is grounded in trauma-informed care, with a specific emphasis on attachment, relationship development, and effective communication. Our primary objective is to support mental health in a holistic manner, working with the transformative power of our equine partners. We are fully committed to inclusivity and will make every effort to ensure that Healing on Manes is the right fit for each individual, while recognizing that, at times, other programs may better align with their specific needs and goals.
