What is Equine Assisted Learning?

A learning approach in group sessions for the development of life skills for a variety of goals through activities involving equines. This integrates the human-horse interaction which is guided by a planned learning experience designed to meet specific goals of the participants. Working with horses provides opportunities to teach critical life skills such as:

  • Trust

  • Respect

  • Honesty

  • Communication

  • Empathy 

  • Humility

  • Compassion

  • Challenges

Horses use non-verbal communication which causes them to be in-tune with human behavior, helping clients better understand how non-verbal communication can impact their lives and influence others. Through interactions with the horses, people learn to be aware of their surroundings and an increase of self-awareness. Clients gain insight into their internal landscape and modes of operation Clients gain self-confidence in working with such a large and powerful animal. Horses offer us the opportunity to experience certain elements to supporting self-growth and self-awareness.
