Horses help our youth develop trust, relationship building skills, problem solving, and confidence.
Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is an effective approach to human development through horsemanship. Participants engage in team emphasized exercises and find themselves learning valuable skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere while working through the dynamics of horses.
Our curriculum is objectively driven and focuses on building life skills including teamwork, communication, leadership, and confidence. Our instructor/facilitator is a certified Equine Assisted Learning Professional with over 25 years of experience in the equine industry.
This program enhances life-skills by focusing on peer pressure, effective communication, problem solving, conflict resolution and other social needs. It also explores alternatives to choosing negative consequences, activities or behaviors.
In every relationship, horses search for strong leadership, if they don’t find it, they will make an effort to lead. Encouraging our youth to lead confidently and fairly is a valuable asset. It teaches them to be leaders of their own lives.
The horses provide an opportunity for development and encourage innovative thinking for youth.
