About

Less Talk More Healing with Horses

The vision behind Zuma's Equine Assisted Learning Center is to provide people from all backgrounds with unique, equine assisted learning coaching and therapy, using evidence and strengths based approaches. Our unique programs aim to promote the development of healthy relationships, personal empowerment, leadership and creative expression.

Find Life's Horse Power

Horses are amazingly connected to our emotions, and through our work with them we are able to uncover truths about who we are and where we want to be. Come discover the true meaning of horse power, as you work with our equine partners, outdoors on our 150 acre ranch.

When Talk Therapy Needs a Boost

Clients are offered a unique opportunity to work with an equine partner in each of the therapeutic sessions. We offer therapy for individuals and families, as well as group work for pre-teens, teens, women and corporations. Our goal is to assist individuals and families during difficult life transitions, overcome obstacles they are facing, and help them achieve a better state of being. With the help of the therapist and the horse, our clients are able to build relationships with powerful and authentic beings, and work as a team to overcome the challenges they are facing.

Zuma's Equine Assisted Learning's Groups

Wellness with Horses

Our purpose is to provide therapeutic sessions to individuals and families that are struggling with a variety of issues. This program is uniquely different from traditional talk therapy because our sessions include but are not limited to use of horses, gardening and walking meditation in an outdoor setting. This program uses evidence and strength-based models such as the Experiential Learning Model, Cognitive-Behavioral techniques and Systems-Based perspective. Sliding scale payments are available.
