At Equine Time we use Dr. Bokey’s books about Ryan O’Brien and the Meadow Ponies as an adjunct to our groundwork sessions with horses to help children and young people develop skills to solve their problems.
We have found that the children love these stories and ask for them time and time again. The stories assist children to find the words to express their emotional experience. In Equine Time sessions the children build on these stories to create stories about their own interactions with the Equine Time horses. These skills then assist them to share their own story.
