Equine and Animal Therapy Benefits Troubled Boys

equine therapy programAt Brush Creek Academy Christian boarding school for troubled boys, we offer animal therapy through a partnership with Oasis Animal Adventures, a unique equine therapy program. Oasis offers an equine therapy program that utilizes unique, exotic animals as well as standard horses and mini horses.

Many studies and research topics have provided proof of the benefits of animal therapy programs for troubled teens. It’s all about creating and cultivating a bond between the boy and the animal. The real power in animal therapy is how the animal reflects back the disposition and moods it sees emanating from the boy. It is a startlingly accurate method of daily feedback for the boy, where if his heart and attitude are not right, the animal will also not respond well. Only calm leadership from the boy will cause the animal to trust him and happily comply.
