Building Internal Resilience Through Horses

Building Internal Resilience Through Horses, a turn-key, trauma-informed, evidence-based program serves as the foundation for our equine offerings. With gratitude, we acknowledge this community collaboration between The Mane Intent, Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and Trent University originally funded by Public Health Agency of Canada.

Sharing Building Internal Resilience Through Horses is our intent.

With our Equine-Assisted Learning Facilitator Training Certificate, mental health and equine professionals gain the necessary skills and knowledge to offer Building Internal Resilience Through Horses to the communities you serve.
