Horses Are Helping Patients Overcome Eating Disord

Horses have played an important role in the history of Remuda Ranch at The Meadows. The word ?Remuda? refers to the group of horses used to give rest and provide a fresh start for the journey ahead.

Back before Remuda Ranch was an eating disorder treatment program, it was a dude ranch. Horses helped ranch guests get a fresh start along the dusty desert trails; today, these extraordinary creatures help women and girls get a fresh start along the road to recovery from eating disorders.
Why Does Equine Therapy Work?

Why do so many of our patients find working with horses to be such an essential part of their healing process? Maybe it?s because horses offer them unconditional acceptance. It is not typically in a horse?s nature to be judgmental or critical. So, when working with them, patients are finally able to shed their fears of not being good enough, and their fears of being imperfect.

Remuda horses are gentle, affectionate creatures who display a natural curiosity about the world around them. A patient may come into the program with a fear of horses or fear related to other areas such as commitment or responsibility. As the bond between patient and horse develops, these fears and other feelings of anger or inadequacy often dissipate. What?s more, as a patient cares for a horse, it helps reduce her focus on herself. Spending time together, whether riding, grooming or communicating on any level, the two develop a relationship of mutual respect and trust.
