The Cedar Lane Farm Equine Assisted Activities program is based on our education and training in the EAGALA model.

The EAGALA Model is a structure and standard for conducting Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL).

It is a team approach. An EAGALA facilitating team consists of a mental health professional (MH), an equine specialist (ES), and one or more horses. All mental health professionals providing services at Cedar Lane Farm are fully licensed and credentialed in their respective fields and all equine specialists are EAGALA certified.

All interaction with horses is done from the ground only. We do not incorporate any mounted work.

We are solution oriented. We believe that clients have their own best solutions if just given an opportunity to discover them. Activities are designed to
create metaphors to “real life”. They help the client gain personal insight and develop life skills while interacting with horses.

We adhere to the EAGALA Code of Ethics. It is a standard of professionalism for all EAGALA associates and for the field Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning. The ethics code is based on fundamental values of overall safety and well-being of clients, foremost above all other considerations.

Summary of Service. We offer private and group sessions, workshops, intensives, and corporate services. We also have provider workshops for continuing Ed  in the EAGALA model. Alternatively we can work with you to design a program that fits your personal, group or professional development needs.
