A GREAT RESOURCE! Linda has done a wonderful job of putting together helpful and effective activities and program descriptions for equine-assisted therapy and learning. She's a master at this work! Martha Minter
Linda Myers is a highly regarded professional! Linda Myers did a fantastic job of providing Equine-Assisted Activities for every professional. Very well written, like the photos and the processing points. The information she provides based on her experience was insightful and very helpful. The six week group curriculum is excellent and I like that the exercises can be modified. Very well written and easy to follow.
"Program Favorites" by Linda Myers is a compilation of exercises and tutorials for therapists and others in the field of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
As a therapist myself in a more traditional setting and a horse owner and enthusiast, I found the book a useful manual for beginning a practice in equine assisted therapy. This book gives the rationale and hoped for benefits specifically designed to elicit personal and interpersonal growth using the exercises and techniques spelled out in an easy to understand format.
I highly recommend this book to anyone thinking of going into EAP, for those already working in this field and for helpers, counselors and therapists in alternative practices to understand the value of EAP and either implement such exercises in their practice or make an informed referral to an EAP program.

Five Stars! I'm not new to the field but bought this book primarily because of the 6 week group curriculum at the end of the book. I was so surprised at the wealth of information this book contains. The entire book is well worth owning! Amazon review
