Grief & Loss Programs



You’re Not Alone.

Grief is a natural response to loss. 

There are many forms of loss that are contributing factors to grief. Loss is not limited to death, it is also the ending of a relationship, this could be a spouse, a friend, a relative, a pet. The loss is what we feel when something or someone we love is taken away.  The grief we feel can be overwhelming, especially when it is on top of past grief that is unresolved. We can experience unexpected emotions such as anger, guilt, profound sadness, and even disbelief. The pain of grief not only affects our emotional health but also our physical health. It can make it difficult to sleep, eat, or concentrate. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief can be. 

Although it can be hard, or even impossible to conceive, the ending of one thing, is the beginning of another. How we cope with grief can influence whether or not the new beginning is a positive one.

How Can Horses Help?

Horses are prey animals, in order to survive, they must be present in every moment and universally aware of their surroundings. 

Horses communicate primarily through body language and must be intensely aware of the actions and behaviours of others. Their characteristics of universal awareness, living in the present, and dependence on non-verbal communication, are vastly different from those of human beings. However; they are also the characteristics that give horses the unique ability to help us truly see ourselves, emotionally, psychologically, and to the depths of our being.


Horses are aware of our emotional state when we interact with them. They can sense our emotions through our body language, even in the most subtle of ways. If we are acting one way but feeling another, a horse will know it. Horses show us exactly who we are by reacting to the messages we are sending. The instant and non-judgmental feedback the horse provides offers us an opportunity to modify our behaviour. Horses teach us to be ‘present’ in a mindset of peace, calm, and balance. 

Horses are unable to lie or judge, what they are able to do is encourage healing through trust, respect, honesty, and acceptance. 

Our programs help children and adults cope with grief and the emotions associated with it. Participants will experience the heartwarming ways of horses, fill their hearts and souls with joy and love once again.
