As a somewhat horse wary individual, I was intrigued to experience equine therapy and in truth was both nervous and apprehensive. Natasha immediately allayed my fears with a comprehensive explanation of some of the principles of equine facilitated therapy as well as and a thorough safety briefing, and her extensive knowledge was clear to see completely putting me at ease.
What struck me straight away was not only her in-depth understanding of horses in general but perhaps more importantly the quality of her connection with Cupid. The deep level of trust and respect from both sides was more than apparent and there was clearly a great bond between them that was incredibly reassuring. I felt able to trust both Natasha and Cupid and could therefore engage at a much deeper level than I anticipated. At all times I felt she was there to support both Cupid and I, with both our emotional as well as physical wellbeing being paramount throughout.
I gained a huge amount of personal growth and understanding from just 3 sessions and felt privileged to have had the opportunity to work with both Natasha and Cupid. I can see just how beneficial this sort of therapy can be and would thoroughly recommend.
Equine Therapy enabled me to reach parts of myself that I didn't know needed reaching. The wonderful journey of self appreciation and healing was very real. I have to say, Natasha was a godsend. She held me close and yet allowed me to blossom. The guiding light of my journey... Cupid. I never would have thought that a horse could speak so sincerely to me, but Cupid certainly did. I am full of gratitude. Equine Therapy was an unknown quantity for me but one I shall return to again and again.
