Equine Assisted Services (EAS) is an umbrella term for any activity or therapy where specially prepared horses or ponies and persons with special needs meet and connect. EAS divides into several fields, depending on the client's needs and focusing on the expected outcomes set by the expert and the client.

We have had over 25 years of experience in EAS, trained many staff members, and ran our centres.
