Wagner Lima, a 34-year-old horse rider, died early this year.
At the funeral, his horse Sereno, which he had owned & loved for 8 years was in attendance.
In an amazingly touching moment, Sereno pressed his head to the casket of his dead owner.

Sheds and Garages in Sunbury
At Central Steel Build, we’ve been building sheds and garages in Sunbury and the Hume area since 1975. Based only a 30 minute drive away, some of our earliest sheds were erected in Sunbury and we’ve since built hundreds, from small backyard sheds to large industrial sheds.
Our sheds are custom designed, engineered and manufactured locally at our Kyneton offices, just 51km away from Sunbury. Our central location allows us to service all of the Macedon Ranges area and most of regional Victoria.
We design and construct the following types of buildings in Sunbury and surrounding areas:
Other Steel Framed Buildings
See below some of the projects that we have constructed in Sunbury in the past:
1. Machinery Shed
We crane lift large and industrial sheds, as you can see in this photo of a machinery shed being lifted in Sunbury.
2. Storage Shed Extension
We often revisit existing projects to add extensions or expand sheds we’ve built in the past.
3. Residential Shed
This residential shed offers vehicle storage as well as an additional shed space for private use. Sheds like this are popular on Sunbury farms and homes.
Everything you need to know about Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy.
What is it?
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, or ‘EAP,’ is a form of psychological therapy that makes use of horse and the human-horse relationship as a tool for psychological therapy.
It has been used to help people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, people with self-confidence and anxiety issues, anti-social issues and other mental health issues.
How does it work?
EAP involves having clients interact with horses and developing a working relationship. For clients with specific psychological challenges, the relationship to the horse is used as a model to explore specific difficulties and help the client overcome internal challenges.
EAP is conducted in sessions, and these sessions move at a pace that best benefits the client.
How can I become a client?
EAP practitioners offer individual sessions, group sessions and workshops. Prices vary between offerings and between practitioners, but an hourly rate can be as much as $240 per hour.
Is it effective?
EAP is relatively new, but the majority of research finds that it is linked with positive outcomes for clients, especially children.
How can I become a practitioner?
The Equine Psychotherapy Institute offers two courses, each involving foundational training of 126 hours, and advanced training of 240 hours.
- For people who are already registered psychotherapists, psychologists, mental health nurses or other mental health practitioners, a course is offered which qualifies the student as an Equine Psychotherapy Practitioner.
(Become a mental health professional usually takes about 6 years; 3 in undergraduate, 1 in honours and 2 in masters)
- For people passionate about horses, but with no psychology qualifications, a course is offered which qualifies the student as an Equine Learning Practitioner, but not a therapist.
Each course involves thorough training, including the submission of papers and completion of exams.
