Integrating Research And Education In Equine Assisted Activities And Therapies
There are many conditions of mind and body that can be treated by animal-human interaction. At Colorado State University, we aspire to create a new home for equine-assisted activities and therapies; a place where individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental challenges can heal, where therapists can treat, where students can learn, and where scientists can research.
The Temple Grandin Equine Center will celebrate and elevate the role of the horse in society through the physical and emotional benefits of serving those in need. TGEC will integrate research and education in order to promote evidence-based practices of EAAT. TGEC will work for the betterment of horses and humans alike.
