How Did It Begin?

Global Health Leader, Dr. Charlyn Belluzzo, founded this organization to honor, utilize, and promote the bond between horses and humans.  

Belos Cavalos’ purpose is to improve health and wellness, provide personal and group educational experiences, and further support the arts and movement research through equine assisted programs.

Our equine partners act as mirrors of our emotions, reflecting our behaviors, attitudes and ideas. Horses are in the moment and they cannot lie. Thus, they recognize and reflect the incongruence between our behavior and emotion, without judgment, revealing our truths. Because horses are herd animals, living in groups much like humans, they provide valuable insight into group dynamics as well as each individuals roles within teams.

In order to successfully build relationships with horses, ourselves, and our team, we must adapt our behaviors to incorporate the essence of horse behavior, being present in each moment, being open and willing, and taking action and communicating from a place of authenticity, clarity, and intention.

The field of Equine Experiential Education and Therapy has progressed beyond horsemanship and into the realm of human development and healing through facilitated experiences with horses.

The key to doing this work in a conscious and responsible manner is to embrace the wisdom of discovery through experiencing.

Specialized practitioners in the fields of psychotherapy, health & wellness, education, law enforcement, and performing arts render services.
