While other equine therapy and retraining related programs exist, most providers are unregulated. Rehab4Rehab aims to expand its team of therapists registered under national boards such as AHPRA. Professions allied to medicine are qualified by a degree process; then by registration in order to be able to practice in Australia.
The registration follows a strict and rigorous government requirement which sets allied health teams apart from counsellors, psychotherapists, life coaches etc. and demands a high level of life evidence-based experience.
Red Hill Equestrian are the providers of the equine welfare, care and management. They are an experienced equine facility with a service skilled in retraining horses for a new purpose. This is where retired racehorses are prepared and assessed for their readiness for the program and are provided with ongoing full-care and management.
Our Point of Difference
We will try to explain. However, this is something that you need to be present, (and you are most welcomed to make a time to visit), so as to witness the purposefully-trained horse to human-in-need connection. The ensuing solution organically unfolds and the benefits become longer-lasting following each subsequent session.
Who would have thought providing a home for ‘homeless’ thoroughbreds and habilitating them towards the best possible life after racing could equally benefit humans? It is costly but worth every bit of time, effort and finance sourcing.
Rehab4Rehab facilitates a powerful equine-assisted therapy program beside a team of registered professional therapists, backed by a team of support workers from both health and equine professional backgrounds.
WE WANT TO SHARE THESE BENEFITS NATIONALLY!
The Rehab4Rehab formula is scalable. Although our promise is a one year promise – to rest, reset, retrain and a potential option to participate in therapy for every horse, once the horses are rehomed there is a place for another.
With the support of like-minded communities and stakeholders who:
- feel an ethical responsibility towards these horses and
- value the mental and physical wellbeing of children struggling in society and at school
we anticipate a quick scaling capacity.
