Real Horse Power With Prof Dr Andreas Liefooghe
We have collaborated with Prof Dr Andreas Liefooghe a psychotherapist and chartered psychologist who founded Operation Centaur two decades ago to provide Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Coaching.
Based in London’s Richmond Park, Operation Centaur offers treatment for a full range of mental health conditions, including people diagnosed with eating, anxiety and behavioural disorders, addiction, depression and trauma. Throughout the 'Monday Mindset' series on our social channels, Andreas will talk through his Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Coaching model, providing thought-provoking tips and explaining how incredible horses can support people in need.
Our southern area feed adviser Nic Read has been working with Andreas and the horses at Operation Centuar to ensure that they have the correct diets to support the work at Operation Centaur. Like any working horse, it's essential that the horses have the right balance of energy to support weight maintenance whilst maintaining a trainable temperament. Throughout the series, Nic will explain how different feed formulations are created to suit different temperament types.
Real Horse Power Webinar
