EQUUSOMA® Press

The following are articles that reference concepts pioneered by Sarah Schlote and EQUUSOMA®. These concepts were being used in human trauma treatment primarily via Somatic Experiencing®, but had not been applied consistently to the horses themselves until formally conceptualized in EQUUSOMA®. Kirrilly Thompson is a former EQUUSOMA® student and academic author who has been instrumental in sharing our teachings.
