We offer Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) to individuals as well as groups. EAL is an interactive approach to experiential learning through the use of horses. It allows individuals to explore personal growth, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and psychologically. Horses give us immediate feedback about our verbal and non-verbal communication of emotions and behaviors. Horses help us connect to ourselves as well as others and can help us heal.
HOW DOES IT WORK
The lessons are designed to accomplish specific goals. It does not involve riding the horses, but the students do learn to care for them. It also includes playing games with them that can teach a wide range of life enhancement skills. For example, we can use the horses to help build teamwork within a group or improve communication. Horses can also help open up doors of communication that are difficult to accomplish in a traditional setting.
WHY USE HORSES
Horses are curious, playful, aware, intelligent, and respond immediately to our actions. They can be intimidating and that challenges us to trust, believe, and try to open new doors. They communicate with us and we have to learn to listen and be open to hearing what they are saying if we want to be successful and create a partnership with them.
WHO CAN IT BENEFIT
EAL can benefit anyone who wants to improve communication skills, enrich relationships, develop critical thinking, and experience a connection to wellness through horses.
EAL is helpful for any of the following list of disabilities or difficulties and many others:
ADD/ADHD Poor self esteem
Social Anxiety PTSD
