"It has been clinically documented that just being around horses changes human brainwave patterns. We calm down and become more centered and focused when we are with horses," he says. "Horses are naturally empathetic. The members of the herd feel what is going on for the other members of the herd." therapy counselor Gabrielle Gardner, of Shine For Life, watching the horse dance around his pen at a farm in Blackstone, a village a few miles north of Brighton.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is a professional field in which the sensitive nature of horses is used to help with stress reduction. Shepard Stable's Stress Buster classes have been designed using the principles of EAL to assist women in setting aside one hour per week to take care of themselves by relaxing with horses in the company of other women. Our Stress Buster classes are taught by an instructor who is certified with the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International to assure their appropriateness and to guarantee a high level of safety.
Facilitator Libby Marks-Shepard is a retired pharmacist and a PATH Intl and CHA certified riding instructor. She is the director of Therapeion Therapeutic Riding Center which is located at Shepard Stable and almost 20 years experience in therapeutic riding and ground activities.
