Horses Helping Humans
The mission at Change Your Lead is to offer skill building and life improving activities where individuals partner with horses to help make positive changes in their lives. We offer all Equine Assisted Psychotherapy services at a private facility in SF Northbay in Petaluma, CA and specialty workshops in Woodside, CA.

Unlike many horse based therapeutic programs, the focus at Change Your Lead is not on riding skills, but on what we can learn about ourselves through our interactions with horses. The focus of EAP is providing individualized activities for participants and consider what happens in the arena as a microscopic representation of what may be happening in their daily lives. Our clients are provided with activities based on their individualized goals and encouraged to utilize the information that they gather in the arena to draw parallels and make life changes.
Sessions at Change Your Lead are based on the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) model. Thus, each session is conducted by a licensed clinical psychologist, an equine specialist and, of course, equine staff. All staff are trained and certified for this work through the EAGALA. Equine staff are all screened for participation in this work. Our equine staff come from a variety of backgrounds and have different characteristics that increase our ability to find a match to work with each participant on his/her goals.
