Wondered what Equine Assisted Learning is all about?
Want to know more about how we learn through Horses?
What to expect:
During a one hour session you will start to understand the way horses can help us learn and reflect on our own feelings and emotions.
Horses are highly attuned to their environment and are sensitive to people's emotions.
When you make a connection with a horse it is very genuine. Horses have the innate ability to support people. They are unbiased and non-judgmental. They respond to a person's intent and behaviour. Horses are social animals with their own personalities, and will often engage with people to build a relationship.

What is Equine Assisted Learning and What to Expect
Equine-assisted sessions, involves a coach and one or more participant, vary depending on the situation being addressed. Experiential techniques such as role-playing, role-reversal, and mirroring, are combined with equine-based activities, including choosing, grooming, and sometimes leading a horse. After the activity, participants then process or discuss their feelings and behaviours associated with the session.
As prey animals, horses are highly attuned to their environment and are sensitive to people’s emotions. Possibly even more so than dogs and other animals typically used in assisted therapies. Horses are capable of sensing a person’s feelings instantly and giving feedback such as moving toward or away from the client.
As horses are large and powerful they have the innate ability to support people as they overcome fear and generate self-confidence for real-life situations. They are unbiased and non-judgemental, responding only to a person’s intent and behaviour. Horses are social animals with their own personalities, and will often engage with people to build a relationship.
