Documented observation at our headquarters, scientific research and exchanges with other institutes worldwide guarantee the quality of our work. We are constantly looking for volunteers to carry out studies.

Do you want to support research on the positive effect of horse interventions? We are especially looking for students who want to do their thesis with us in one of these projects:

Project: Horse Guided Empowerment© (HGE© | EcC®) for Athletes

Research on the influence of EcC® sessions on the overall health of the athlete horse, on the relationship of the athletic binomial and a possible advantage in competitions. The student will preferably work with the facilitators in the Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Project: Horses and Autism

The positive effect of horses on clients with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) has been proven a few times. However, we want to carry out a study that includes activities not only mounted but also from the ground and that places emphasis on the application of natural dressage. There is a large database, videos, long and short term clients. The student will work with the facilitators from Ecuador.

Project: Holistic Equine Therapy

EcC® has a validated evaluation tool for work with children. We wish to compare the results of classical equine therapy with the results of holistic equine therapy, EcC® model. There is a database of sixty (60) participating children. The student will work with the facilitators from Ecuador.
