Equine Assisted Therapy
EAGALA or Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association Model, is the global standard in equine counseling. The model consists of a mental health specialist, an equine specialist, and a horse, inside an enclosed arena with the client. EAGALA is about the horses doing the work of effecting change in a person’s life.
Originally a family farm, The Pasture at Mercer Farm is an equine- assisted psychotherapy center that combines refuge with reflection and growth. The peaceful surroundings provide a beautiful backdrop for education, spiritual enrichement, and home for rescued horses and donkeys
