Why do we work with horses? Equine-assisted work promotes more effective changes and more rapid growth compared with traditional clinical and psycho-educational approaches. We honor all by providing a supportive haven – a place where concerns and struggles can be explored. The experiential nature of working with horses, engages clients in their own healing and learning process, reaching solutions that meet them squarely on their own terms. It is proven to be the most powerful approach to helping clients achieve and sustain personal and professional growth!

The ARCH Framework

The Arenas of Change way of facilitation is the thought process we are going through as we interact with and support those we serve.

Based on values and keystones, the ARCH framework supports personal growth, organizational development and mental health.  When applied in an environment with horses, the ARCH framework impacts lives in meaningful ways.

It provides a thought process and core style of facilitation, designed to support your work as you empower and positively change lives.
