Equine Assisted Development is an EAGALA-certified farm in Grand Rapids. EAD offers client's two distinct forms of therapy, first the EAGALA Model - equine assisted psychotherapy (EAP) and second, equine assisted learning (EAL). The EAGALA Model is considered the gold standard for equine assisted psychotherapy and personal development.


Clients looking to utilize EAP therapy are required to provide their own licensed therapist to accompany therapy sessions to work alongside an EAGALA certified horse specialist and those interested in EAL, work solely with an EAGALA certified horse specialist. Please note, client's that fall within the military program group MUST utilize EAP therapy and provide their own licensed therapist.
