EFP is popular for psychotherapy clients who seem “stuck” in treatment, or as a reward for working hard, utilizing a multitude of activities including handling, grooming, and longeing. A team made up of a certified psychotherapist, an equine facilitator, and a horse or horses work with the clients, with a common starting activity of the horse choosing the client, to allow for the best personality comparability and team dynamic.
