Are you looking for comprehensive yet understandable information about Equine Assisted Services?

Equine Assisted Services (EAS) is a very effective rehabilitation approach suitable for children and adults with various health, learning and social problems. An expert cooperates with a specially selected and trained horse or pony to utilize the movement of horseback or interact with it to achieve various treatment goals.

EAS divides into several fields, depending on the client's needs and focusing on the expected outcomes set by the expert and the client.

This workshop is open to anybody who is interested in this field.

  • You will learn what a safe and productive lesson or session should look like. What quality marks expect from providers?
  • We will speak about the way how to open and run the EAS centre.
  • We will discuss the possibility of funding and the frequency of the intervention to reach the best results.


In 2006, Vera and Nadia met in the Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City (SBAHC) in Riyadh as physiotherapists working at the Child Development Center. Vera, as a Hippotherapy Clinical Specialist provided know-how for opening and managing a Hippotherapy centre and teaching hippotherapy courses. Nadia participated in the course in 2007, having no experience with equines. However, she fell in love with horses and hippotherapy, taking over Vera´s position after her departure from Europe. They have stayed in touch, so now they can teach you this excellent treatment technique in Riyadh again!
