Please contact us if you are interested in a Family Equine-Assisted Learning Session.
With smart phones and other devices providing a constant distraction, creating a real connection with your family can be nearly impossible.
Group sessions with horses can be a fun way to improve communication skills and teamwork. A horse is the ultimate teacher of respect, and they convey the message in unforgettable ways.
Life Skills Development
Individual Skills Development
At EAL we take a pro-active approach to empower people with positive life skills and abilities, and to help them conquer the negative influences that surround them. It is our goal to offer each participant the opportunity to work with and learn from the horses...a dream come true for some, and perhaps a supportive exercise in conquering fears for others.
We teach the negative effects of peer pressure, effective communication, problem solving, conflict resolution, and other social needs. EAL also explores alternatives to choosing negative consequences, activities, or behaviours. The most challenging and poorly developed skills in our modern day ‘technological filled’ environments -boundary setting and appropriate assertiveness- are also addressed.
Our goal is to provide hope and healing to people that suffer from substance abuse, behavioural issues, attention deficit disorder, eating disorders, physical, emotional or sexual abuse, depression, anxiety and relationship problems.
Equine-Assisted Learning is a unique equine-assisted program designed to develop customized learning experiences that focus on enhancing specific skills in participants.
Participants are offered the opportunity to work through the program while learning about themselves, their abilities to form relationships, how to contribute to a team, and how their unique barriers may assist or limit them.
The facilitator’s task is to be present and ‘listen’ to the horse’s non-verbal communication as they help to reveal the individual’s personality, and guide them to become balanced, healthy and emotionally skilled. Personal growth and self-discovery often result in a life-altering change as they work through the program.
