Leading the way in Polyvagal Equine Theory

Polyvagal Equine Institute is dedicated to supporting and furthering the polyvagal principles of safety through interacting, connecting, and learning from horse-human bonds. We provide training, facilitate a support community, and promote research centered around improving human compassion. Topics of focus include equine trauma interventions, defining appeasement vs Stockholm Syndrome, Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, and self-regulation skills.
