Training Program in Equestrian Therapies for Professionals in care of Patients with mental Distress – Equitalia Valladolid

Fundación Para La Promoción Del Deporte Ecuestre and Equitalia Valladolid signed their fourth collaboration agreement to develop the Training Program in Equestrian Therapies for professionals in care of patients with mental distress at Fundación Intras.


During the program, these professionals were involved in the design and development of a Workshop on Emotional Intelligence, building up teamwork and social skills relevant to their work at Fundación Intras.

An introductory theory base on the topics of Identification of emotions and Teamwork, was given on May 7th at the facilities of Equitalia at Boecillo (Valladolid), with 9 of the Foundation employees.


The Emotional Intelligence Workshop itself was conducted on two different days, May 8th and 15th, and was attended by 14 and 15 Foundation users, respectively, so that the participants in the course could put into practice what they had learned.


In these workshops, users had the opportunity to identify, face and talk about the different sensations and emotions that emerged in them with each horse and in each dynamic, gaining awareness on the importance of organization and teamwork to reach certain goals.

Fundación Para La Promoción Del Deporte Ecuestre stresses that the information obtained in these workshops reinforces the knowledge about people with diversity essential to offer them adapted and personalized professional orientation for their future jobs.
