The health benefits of interaction with horses for people experiencing mental health and other conditions is fast gaining recognition all over the world. This book explores the experiences of seven 'at-risk' young people who participated in a research study based at a unique therapeutic horsemanship centre in the UK. Therapeutic horsemanship is aligned to the developing fields of equine-assisted psychotherapy and equine-assisted learning where horses are partnered for social, emotional and learning benefits. The young people who attended the Therapeutic Horsemanship centre were referred from organisations including a foster care agency, youth offending team and a pupil referral unit, and were considered to be 'at-risk' due to their various psychosocial disadvantages. A number of themes emerge throughout the course of the book, including the areas of nurture, attachment and trust, social well-being and resilience, identification with the horse, a 'safe' space and calming influence, role of the horse in the therapeutic arena and the natural environment and spiritual dimensions. Additional links to the mindfulness literature are explored and bring an exciting new dimension to the field of equine assisted therapy and learning. The book includes a foreword from Leif Hallberg, author of Walking the Way of the Horse.

Excerpts from Beyond Words: The Healing Power of Horses "The space between words is where we live with horses. In the silence we are truly heard." ******* "So much of our sadness, our discontent, our addictions and compulsions are driven by the emptiness we experience when, without being aware of it, we detach from our emotional selves. We often mistake this emptiness as boredom, anxiety, hunger, and/or loneliness. Horses, in their honesty and compassion, help us to reconnect to ourselves, to our humanness." ******* "What I have come to believe is that no matter what orientation you bring to psychotherapy, or what equine certification you achieve, the one variable that has been shown to be critically important is the trusting, respectful, and compassionate relationship that develops between therapist and client; whether the therapist has two or four legs is irrelevant!" ********** "The goal of Beyond Words: The Healing Power of Horses is to connect the advances made in the treatment and understanding of mental health issues with the knowledge we have accrued through the years about the nature of horses. The key is to integrate the two professional worlds of equine specialists and psychotherapists, so that each can appreciate, communicate, and work together to further enhance the practice of Equine Experiential Psychotherapy."

The Horse Cure

The horse’s response guides the treatment team, as well as the client, in the healing process.

ASHLEY was locked in closets as punishment, and physically and sexually abused, resulting in an angry and violent child who threatened her adoptive family—until she met Cocoa and Radar, the horses that helped her learn to trust again. BRENDA was diagnosed bipolar and lived through humiliating domestic abuse, but three horses—Delilah, Wiscy, and Diesel—helped her establish a sense of self-worth, hope for the future, and ultimately, the will to go on. NICK was angry, suicidal, and a veteran with combat PTSD, who now says, “Horses literally saved my life.” Inspired by her own childhood trauma when she spent seven days in a coma, awakened to a severely compromised body and brain, and rebuilt her life with the help of a horse, Michelle Holling-Brooks founded Unbridled Change, a non-profit Equine-Partnered Therapy organization that helps match horses to individuals in need. Here she shares amazing stories of the people she’s worked with and the “horse cure” that changed their lives. Survivors of trauma, loss, illness, abuse, stress, and depression can face seemingly insurmountable obstacles. But today, a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that horses play a crucial role in therapy for those struggling with significant psychological and emotional challenges. Horses respond to angry, inhibited, heartbroken, defiant, terrified clients in many different ways, often breaking through defensive barriers via their physical presence, or by pointing to areas of psychological distress not immediately apparent. The horse’s response guides the treatment team, as well as the client, in the healing process.

Dutch Henry is on a mission to help people see their horses with new eyes, to listen with new ears, to touch their lives with greater sensitivity and awareness. It has often been said that our horses are our greatest teachers. Dutch Henry, who has opened his heart, mind and soul to the horse, is living proof of that statement. Enjoy the learning as we join Dutch on a remarkable journey. ~ Bobbie Jo Lieberman-Editor-in-Chief, trailBLAZER magazine Dutch Henry finds joy as he guides the horse/human relationship closer to and into this space. This project compiles Dutch Henry's years of experience gathering helpful-sometimes life-altering-exercises for the horse. This ability to help the horse sometimes reciprocates in a life-altering shift in the human. Dutch has found and follows the guidance of horse professionals who honor that which he honors. These exercises are based on the truth of the whole horse-emotional, mental, physical. Enjoy the wonderful way of Dutch Henry's writing. Enjoy soaking in this supportive way with your horse. Enjoy the shift in you and your horse's relationship.~ Diane J. Sept, Connected Riding Senior instructor and owner of Back To Basics Equine Awareness In this book Dutch covers what we can do to become better guardians for our equines by understanding their needs, truly encompassing mind, body and soul. I think that if horses could write, they would have compiled a book like this! It's For the Horses is a passionate, highly useful resource for all people who want to do right by the equines in their life. This book belongs in every horse person's library, but best kept within close reach as it is a book to be referred back to often.~ Lisa Ross-Williams, Publisher/Editor-In-Chief, Natural Horse Magazine and author of the award-winning book, Down-To-Earth Natural Horse Care. I believe that things would immediately improve for every horse on this planet if we could effect one simple little change, one tiny little shift in perspective. Dutch Henry believes this as well and that is why I so strongly recommend his latest book, It's For the Horses. Because if we could convince every horse owner on the planet to make every decision about their horses from the perspective of the horse, then everything would change immediately. Relationship, training and the health and happiness of the horse. Kathleen and I have proven it. Dutch Henry has proven it. And everything he has written in It's For the Horses will lift you closer and closer to those goals. And closer and closer to your horses. Read it. You will not regret it. Nor will your horses. ~ Joe Camp, author of the national best-seller, The Soul of a Horse-Life Lessons from the Herd and its Amazon #1 best-selling sequel Born Wild-The Soul of a Horse
