Arenas For Change is a professional community offering facilitator training & support — created especially for therapists, life & executive coaches, and educators who transform lives through applying a story mindset in sessions incorporating horses, animals, and nature.

Unbridled Sprit's staff and volunteers have access to the wonderful trainings they offer and our staff are in the process of obtaining certification. 

The EAGALA Model  - A Team Approach 
The Eagala model provides an innovative solution that provides a unique space for an emotionally safe, hands-on experience for clients. With real-time feedback, clients are able to reach issues where traditional talk-based therapies leave off.

The Model requires a licensed, credentialed Mental Health Professional and a qualified Equine Specialist who structure sessions incorporating horses to effectively address the client’s treatment plan or learning goals, helping with issues such as addiction, domestic abuse, behavioral disorders, depression, anxiety and trauma.

Unbridled Spirit currently employs three Certified Equine Specialists as well as one Mental Health Professional who are all EAGALA certified.
