Sign up for June Workshop

June 2, 2023 — Each year we offer a series of workshops to help seasoned, new and aspiring instructors and volunteers further their knowledge of therapy with horses. Sessions are open to all. Our June 14th session, Autistic and Being with Horses with Naomi Nyamudoka, will discuss what it is like to be autistic and how working with equines can provide a space to explore being more authentically our autistic selves. Starts at 2:30 p.m. and will be hybrid – participants can join virtually, in person at the farm or access the recorded sessions at a later time.

The instructor, Naomi Nyamudoka, offers a unique perspective as she is autistic. She will share her experience facilitating learning sessions with her equine partners. Instructors will learn about autism, how horses can create a safe learning and experiential environment, and opportunities to support autistic clients/students. Naomi is an autistic Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Perthshire, Scotland. She practices both online and provides in person Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy with her herd of four.
