Fall Recovery for Riders

Fall trauma happens in the context of a relationship, and is healed in the context of relationships. In Fall Recovery we guide you toward a reparative relational experience in:

  1. Your relationship with yourself and your body


    Your relationship with riding

  3. Your horse's relationship to carrying a rider, and specifically, you

  4. Your relationship with horses and specifically, your horse

  5. Your relationship to anyone or anything else that may have been involved (trainers, riding companions, competitors, etc.)

How does Fall Recovery work?


Through Somatic Experiencing (SE) and Trauma Informed Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (TI-EAP), your two facilitators, Debbie Blackmon, MA, LPA-IP and Reccia Jobe will support and guide you through a customized experience that will address:

  • the areas of your own body and nervous system that need attention, balance, and repair 

  • bracing and tension patterns that are interfering with your riding

  • any changes to your confidence and perceived competence in riding 

  • the impact of the fall on your equine partner 

  • any changes to your equine's confidence and competence in carrying a rider

  • damage to the trust and bond you have with your equine partner

  • any other harm or disruption to other relationships related to the fall


Logistics and Pricing

This a great option for anyone who is able and willing to travel to meet us at Pecan Creek Ranch and work with us and our horses. Your horse stays home, and we practice the horse piece with one of our specially trained horses who are experienced in helping people recover from events that impact their system the way a fall does.



  • A 1 hour in- person assessment. This assessment helps us to understand you and  what you have experienced so we can map out the plan for your Fall Recovery.

  • 5 hours of applying the Fall Recovery protocols, engaging with horses to address the equine-human relationship piece, and developing a plan to implement with your horse so your relationship and your horse can also recover from the fall.

  • 2 Follow-up  1 hour virtual consultations to tie up any loose ends and/or to guide and support the process of working with your horse and implementing the rest of your Fall Recovery plan.
