Equine Assisted Learning is similar to EAP, The focus is on education and learning specific skills (goals) as defined by the individual or group. These skills might be to improve communication skills between a couple, family members or mentoring group, leadership and team unity for a sports team, or developing resiliency in overcoming an addiction. Or perhaps, you are seeking direction/clarity for your life.
Coaching workshops can range in one hour time to three hours, depending on the size and needs.
The focus is not horsemanship nor is any riding involved. No previous horse experience is needed. The focus of EAL involves setting up ground activities involving horses which will require the participant or group to apply certain skills. Non-verbal communication, creative thinking, teamwork, taking responsibility and attitude are several examples of the tools utilized and developed by Equine Assisted Learning.
All activities are conducted in an out door arena.
Step out of the therapist's office and into the corral. Learn to view and experience life in a new positive way while interacting with horses, your therapist & equine specialists.
