Our horses are the true therapists, specifically chosen and trained to meet the requirements for the Equine Assisted Learning program. 

Horses working with the vulnerable sector and are all closely monitored throughout every session. This due to the emotional condition of the client and the horses' innate ability to mirror human emotion and behaviour.

About Us

Founded in 2017, Zen Equus Ranch was the brainchild of Hilda Keskin, licensed hypnotherapist and meditation coach and currently completing a Special Care Counselling program. Hilda's passion for horses alongside her love of psychotherapy is the driving force of this enterprise, and with a dedicated Board of Directors and Volunteers, the dream is coming to fruition.
