Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) addresses a student’s learning goals through horse-related activities and often works toward the student’s personal exploration of feelings and behaviors. EAL often includes social and emotional learning. The equine specialist and educator cooperate to best achieve these learning goals.

Why Horses?

Participants partner with the horse to work through real life issues using games and activities. Horses are social animals and often mirror human body language. Their responses are honest and immediate, which makes them powerful communicators. With the aid of horses, participants have the opportunity to gain better insight into themselves and their lives.

What to Expect

Participants in EAL will have curriculum put in place by their educator and the equine specialist.  The goal is to incorporate equine activities into a client’s plan and to then process (or discuss) feelings, behaviors, and newly learned lessons. This program does not involve any horseback riding. Ultimately, the goal of EAL is to empower and change peoples’ lives.
