The EAGALA Model is a distinctive experiential framework designed to allow clients the latitude to discover, learn, and grow from the horse-human relationship.

Known as equine-assisted psychotherapy, or equine-assisted learning depending on the session objectives, the EAGALA Model is the global standard for professionals. Here's why:

The EAGALA Model is highly professional.

EAGALA is the leading association offering a fully-developed, professionally endorsed treatment model for mental health professionals practicing equine-assisted psychotherapy. The EAGALA Model stands alone in the world of equine-assisted psychotherapy and personal development because of the model's standards, code of ethics, continuing education requirements, replicable framework, and team approach. Under the EAGALA Model, both a registered, credentialed Mental Health Professional and a certified Equine Specialist work together collaboratively at all times to assure clients get the therapeutic attention and support they need as they make life changes.

The most effective work happens on the ground.

The EAGALA Model involves no riding or horsemanship, making it both safe and effective. Clients work directly with horses face-to-face on the same footing. This ground level work enables clients to better perceive the horses' actions and reactions as they work to process and solve their life challenges. Under the trained eye of the EAGALA Treatment Team, horses offer clients honest feedback and usable information that helps them understand how their process and actions affect others and impacts their lives.

The EAGALA Model is client-centered and solution-oriented.

The work is built on the premise that it's the clients who best determine the kinds of life changes they need to make in order to improve their lives. The job of the EAGALA treatment team is to put the EAGALA Model to work to meet the clients' goals by engaging the unique intuitive power of horses to help them understand their process and practice the changes they want to make in a safe, supportive setting.
