Join at our networking mixer at Hudson Valley HorsePlay!

At this mixer we will learn about the services that Hudson Valley HorsePlay offers and we will have a chance to meet the horses.


HorsePlay was created by Cori Nichols, a lifelong horsewoman, riding instructor, and owner of Nichols Field Riding Club in Kerhonkson, NY. Cori has consistently been incorporating Equine Assisted (EA) Learning into her riding instruction. "EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) is a natural extension", she says. Cori now works side-by-side with MH practitioners, providing EAP and EAL sessions throughout the year.

HorsePlay sessions are custom created to meet the goals and needs of our clients. We may incorporate specific activities to support learning and personal growth, enabling people to deal with challenges in their lives and make changes when and where necessary. For some clients, a more free-form approach may be deemed best. Equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions are shaped to meet clients “exactly where they are.”

Benefits of Equine Interactive Therapy include:
- Increased self-awareness
- Increased confidence
- Improved social skills
- Improved communication
- Anxiety reduction
- Greater trust
- Improved appropriate assertiveness
- Enhanced resiliency skills
- Healthy boundaries: self & others' / observance of them
- Responding - not reacting
- Anger management
