Horses Helping Humans Grow

Equine Assisted Learning programs focus on incorporating horses experientially for educational and personal growth and development.

Equine Assisted Learning provides ground-based activities with the horses which are designed to meet a group or individual’s specific learning skills or educational goals.

Alternative approaches are used to engage and create positive learning experiences for children, youth and adults.

Horses are social animals and have defined roles within their herds. These herd relationships are similar to the relationships in people’s lives.

The horses provide opportunities for metaphorical learning which also creates a natural learning opportunity for clients to examine their own relationships.

Equine Assisted Learning sessions are unique. Even people with no horse experience or who are afraid of horses can take part.

Sessions do not involve any horse riding, activities are all ground based.
