Haley is an East Nashville resident and Equine Specialist assisting with EAGALA sessions and groups. The EAGALA model of therapy relies on a team of two people, one of them being an equine professional and the other a mental health professional. The equine specialist helps to pick which horses will be used for which sessions and is in charge of safety during sessions for clients and horses, as well as observing horses’ behaviors in session. Haley has also grown up riding and competing in 4H and Pony Club, worked with several trainers over the years and taught some herself, and worked for veterinary facilities as well. Haley has been a huge encourager of my dreams and even helped me to come up with the name of the Leg Up program.
