Horses don’t judge but they constantly assess. Their feedback is honest and instant. Learning to listen to what horses have to say is powerful and can spur the answer to individual change. Quite simply, the horse does the teaching; facilitators are there to offer explanation and provide guidance as the participant works through the solution. Working with horses creates memories that we can apply to our lives and retain far longer than sitting in ‘just another classroom'.
What is Equine
To put it simply, Equine Assisted Learning is a learner based educational experience with horses. More specifically, Equine Assisted Learning is an effective approach to human development that encourages individual and team growth. Exercises are developed to encourage self confidence through validated, hands-on experiences. Participants engage in objectively driven exercises and find themselves learning valuable life skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere while working with horses. Equine Assisted Learning has proven to be effective, powerful, positive, educational, and creative.
