Equine Assisted Therapy

Dayspring offers solutions-oriented therapy using horses to assist in the the healing journey. Our EAGALA certified Equine Specialist, licensed Marriage Family Therapist, 5 Standard-Bred Horses, and 2 mini-horses work with clients from our 150 x 90 foot outdoor arena.


EMDR is a researched based therapy designed to help people move through trauma and find resolution. Hence a better name might be “trauma processing therapy”.  Depending on goals and a person’s history EMDR is typically a brief therapy that it requires as few as 2-5 sessions but more as necessary.
