So whilst looking up a website for Barbara Dimmick, author of In the Presence of Horses, I stumbled across a website named the same. This one was not for the novel though!
I’ve explored the option of equine assisted learning on Equus-Blog before. It seems to me to be a rapidly growing area of therapy for individuals, with the use of equines being a major theme. In fact, it now seems that many are able to combine their pyschology qualifications or even therapy qualifications with their passion for and love of horses, and create a remarkable pair that helps people to progress and improve.
If you have an interest in helping people to develop and improve their mental health with the use of horses, I encourage you to take a look at In the Presence of Horses, which is a form of Equine Psychotherapy.
