Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential learning approach encouraging interaction between participants and horses to help promote personal development. This method of learning harnesses the natural behaviors of the horse and herd to facilitate personal reflection
and growth.

Horses are prey animals, so they naturally have an acute sensitivity to their surroundings. This makes them very attuned to their environment and to whatever enters their sphere of perception.

Horses are great reflectors of human emotions; with their no-nonsense meters they have the ability to provide immediate honest feedback to help individuals become more self-aware and mindful of their responses.

Participants engage in a variety of ground-based activities which may include grooming, leading, and obstacle courses. These activities are designed to challenge and develop problem solving skills, build trust, and enhance interpersonal relationships.


Partnering with horses, participants can gain insights into their own behavior patterns, improve emotional regulation, and explore a deeper understanding of their own strengths.


EAL is facilitated by trained professionals who guide the interactions to ensure a safe supportive environment. This method leverages the unique human-horse connections to foster a transformative learning experience.
