STAT provides donor funded programs to First Responders

STAT Inc® provides a broad range of equine assisted services facilitated with mental health professionals, equine specialists, physical therapists, speech therapists, and certified therapeutic riding instructors. First Responders and Veterans are at the HEART of STAT; we also have Veteran staff and family members of First Responders/Veterans/Service Members.

We are honored to help First Responders heal, learn, and strengthen alongside horses through Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) individual and group programs that are primarily ground based. Your responses are kept confidential with the STAT Staff Team.

We also teach people how to ride horses through basic instruction and to grow greater confidence on the ground, in the saddle, and on trail.

First Responders: Are You or an Immediate Family Member a Veteran or Service Member?

VETERANS and Immediate Family Members: Please click on our STAT Inc Veteran application, as STAT programming is covered under the VA Adaptive Sports-22 grant.

Welcome First Responders and Loved Ones!

First Responder Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Programs:

STAT's EAL Team Approach: a Mental Health Professional facilitator and Equine Specialist. Mounted exercises on horses are optional.

STAT Teams are certified in two EAL Protocols: Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) with an Individual Military Designation and the OK Corral Crisis Series.

We offer First Responders a 1-hour Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) experience pending donor funds. Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) focuses on a growth mindset to build confidence, motivation, problem solving, and communication without processing any mental health conditions or trauma. While EAL is not mental health treatment, it is often described as therapeutic, educational, and enjoyable.

Is Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Psychotherapy?

No. Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is not mental health treatment and not to be confused with Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP), which is mental health treatment (e.g., PTSD, Anxiety, Depression). If you are already receiving mental health care, let your mental health treatment provider know about your interest in an EAL program.
