What does Equine Assisted Learning Look Like?

Is class room learning not for you?

Perfect! During your EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) session(s)  with us, the only time you will find yourself in a classroom (if you choose to) is during the briefing and debriefing. You will learn all other valuable life skills while working with a team that consists of two or three human participants, and one very informed horse.

Are you curious about what horses can teach us?

In Equine Assisted Learning we are allowing the horses to teach you. Horses consistently assess and react to stimulus provided by participants, but they do this without judgement. This is the skill that is truly profound. Their feedback is honest and instant. By working with horses in an EAL (Equine Assisted Learning) setting, you will learn about leadership, problem solving, negotiation skills, and other valuable life skills.

What does “live in the moment” mean to you?

Living in the moment and mindfulness are terms that have resurfaced in this recent decade. You can practice these wonderful skills in a variety of ways, such as meditation, or yoga to name a few. But how about practicing living in the moment with the help of a horse? Horses are the best teachers to show you how to live in the moment and teach you other vital skills that can assist you for the rest of your life.
