Eagala Equine Psychotherapy


Founded in Santaquin, Utah in 1999, Eagala provides resources, education, standards, and support for professionals incorporating horses for mental health and personal or organizational development.

Why horses?


The Eagala Model can help you take control of your life and change your outcomes.  When you are unable to handle stresses of life and you find yourself in the same situation over and over again, it takes a toll on relationships and your ability to manage life well.  Emotions and behaviors become problematic and you end up feeling stuck.  Lacking self-confidence and self-respect, frustrated and discouraged with life, it can seem hopeless.  Learn to connect with your feelings and open to a new way of treatment in a non-judgmental and safe space. Explore your own landscape of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and life experiences in a safe process in collaboration with your Eagala treatment team.  Where traditional talk therapy leaves off, involving horses in the process empowers you to 'see' your behaviors and how those behaviors impact you and others.  Liberate yourself as you find the answers you are looking  for, guided by professionals.

Eagala's philosophy is about holding space, believing in the innate abilities of our clients and horses, avoiding judgment and interpretation, embracing confidentiality and emotional safety, and mastering skill sets that apply to many areas of life.

Sessions are held at HorsePower in a heated indoor arena during the winter months where we are able to socially distance and follow CDC guidelines.
