The Equine-Assisted Therapy Workbook gives readers the tools they need to increase professional competency and personalize the practical applications of equine-assisted therapy. Each chapter includes thought-provoking ethical questions, hands-on learning activities, self-assessments, practical scenarios, and journal assignments applicable to a diverse group of healthcare professionals. The perfect companion to The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy,this workbook is appropriate for both students and professionals.


"When one thinks of horses, words such as strength and majesty are often considered. Equine-assisted interventions have developed over the past fifty years and are becoming widely recognized as a form of therapy. Hallberg’s book and companion workbook are excellent sources for learning how trained horses with professionals can work together to support the quality of life for many. The books are a must for all interested professionals." Aubrey H. Fine, EdD, licensed psychologist/professor at California Polytechnic State University, editor/author of The Handbook on Animal Assisted Therapy, How Animals Help Students Learn, and Afternoons with Puppy.

"This workbook enables the reader to more fully understand the topics addressed in the book through practical scenarios, activities, and other hands-on methods that ensure better comprehension and retention. The book is about the entire industry; this workbook is about the individual reader."

C. Mike Tomlinson, DVM, MBA, president of the Horses & Humans Research Foundation and FEI/USET Team Veterinarian

"The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy illuminates the cognitive dissonance that has stymied the field of equine-assisted activities and therapies for the last forty years and offers a thoughtful compilation of historical reference, research, and practical discussion. Using the Equine-Assisted Therapy Workbook together with the text will provoke industry-wide self-reflection and will help both therapy and non-therapy professionals identify and advocate for their important and unique roles within this field."

Kitty Stalsburg, ESMHL, CBEIP-ED, PATH Intl. master instructor and executive director of High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc.

"Leif Hallberg’s The Equine-Assisted Therapy Workbook is the perfect companion to The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy as it provides readers with an informative and thought-provoking resource that addresses the scope, provision, business, ethics, and science of incorporating horses in health care."

Wendy Wood, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, professor of occupational therapy, director of research at the Temple Grandin Equine Center,Colorado State University

"This companion to The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy is easy to use and full of opportunities for self-paced, continued learning."

Nina Ekholm Fry, MSSc, CCTP, director of Equine Programs and coordinator of the Equine-Assisted Mental Health Practitioner Certificate, Institute for Human-Animal Connection, University of Denver

"Leif Hallberg’s The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy and The Equine-Assisted Therapy Workbook are multifaceted, completely comprehensive guides for practitioners interested in becoming competent, ethical, and effective providers of equine-assisted therapy. These are among my top recommended resources for my own students in animal-assisted interventions."

Leslie Stewart, PhD, LPC, assistant professor of counseling at Idaho State University, primary author of the American Counseling Association’s Animal-Assisted Therapy Competencies

"This workbook provides EAT professionals and students with comprehensive theoretical and practical exercises to complement The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy. I love Leif’s books as they provide me with the ‘go to’ texts of EAT for teaching my students; they are thoroughly researched and their layout encourages student growth and progress, not only in their knowledge of EAT but in self-awareness and self-development. Thank you, Leif!"

Clare Thomas-Pino, lecturer/adjunct professor, University of Maine system

"The Equine-Assisted Therapy Workbook encourages readers to think and rethink their methodology, ethics, terminology, education, and practice. The workbook is written in an objective way, stating Leif Hallberg's true understanding of EAT with all the twists. Hand in hand with the workbook goes the Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy, which targets the differences between the branches of EAA/EAT. Both the book and the workbook can be utilized internationally in teaching and self-learning."

Sanna Mattila-Rautiainen, president of the Horses in Education and Therapy International Federation (HETI)

"In The Clinical Practice of Equine-Assisted Therapy,Leif Hallberg provides readers with a wealth of information specific to the delivery of clinical services in this field. This book is thought provoking and illuminates the need to further articulate the unique benefits and characteristics of therapeutic riding and equine-assisted therapy. Using both the book and accompanying workbook will encourage other non-therapy professionals like myself to understand and advocate for our important role in this field."

Patti Coyle, PATH Intl. advanced instructor, ESMHL, training and education director of High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc.
