Horse Assisted Therapy
We provide horse assisted therapy for people who want to expand their capacity to navigate life's challenges.
We combine work with horses and talking therapy in collaboration with a mental health professional at our North Canterbury premises, or onsite at your location with our team of mini horses.
Our approach is often particularly effective for people who find social situations and traditional learning environments difficult.
Our facilities are fully accessible,safe, private and all work is confidential under a strict code of ethics.
Our unique approach
We are an approved WINZ provider
Are you receiving financial assistance from WINZ such as a disability allowance?
You can contact a WINZ case manager to discuss accessing a subsidy to fund your Salta Horses therapy sessions.
Usually we provide up to six sessions per client and WINZ can pay Salta Horses directly, removing the need to sort out reimbursements.
We will contact you to learn about you and what you want to get out of working with Salta Horses.
When you attend your sessions, please dress for the weather, with closed-in, sturdy footwear.
Possible outcomes may include:
Better engagement with therapy
Improved communication (verbal and non-verbal)
Creative problem-solving skills
Greater self-confidence and self-awareness
Reduced stress and fatigue
New emotional insights
New patterns of behaviour
More resilience when facing challenges
