Our Team

Kim Kidson is a senior Clinical Psychologist (MSc Clin Psych) with ten years experience in equine assisted psychotherapy. She received intensive training in America and facilitated various training workshops, team building and clinics on her farm, Autumn Leaves. Kim is currently the leading expert in equine assisted psychotherapy in South Africa and is also the founder of EAPISA (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Institute of South Africa). Kim is regularly approached to give talks to the public, do interviews on radio and for well known magazines and newspapers on equine assisted psychotherapy and team building. At present she is busy completing her PhD on equine assisted psychotherapy.


I've completed the bronze level for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and will be doing the silver level this year 2021. I am currently studying an honors degree in Health Sciences through the Open University.

I've ridden and worked with horses for 13 years. I have a passion for therapy and helping others, and EAPISA helps me accomplish this. I have job shadowed and volunteered at therapy riding schools, therapy dance schools, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, to better my understanding of individuals. I have a goal to combine dancing, physiotherapy and horses as one therapy for different individuals including special needs.

Rolynne Rensleigh has been working for Kim Kidson for the past 5 – 6 years as a riding instructor. She facilitates holiday camps for 45 – 55 children regularly and has also completed her training through EAPISA as a Horse Specialist. Rolynne is currently completing her Equine Behavioural Sciences training. She is first aid level three qualified. Rolynne facilitates equine assisted psychotherapy with individuals, families and groups on a weekly basis as part of her working programme at Autumn Leaves Farm.
