Imagine what the future would hold if we equipped our youth with the foundational tools for life? Skills development is essential to building resilience and long-term quality of life. Life skills development prepares our youth for whatever life throws at them!
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is a learner-based educational method to develop life skills where the horse is the teacher- YES, A HORSE. The value of working with horses in the teaching of young people will increase self-awareness and self-development maximizing their full potential. The skills acquired in the arena are easily transferred to experiences in everyday life.
This one-of-a- kind internationally certified program provides & challenges participants with the opportunity to maximize their potential by discovering what lies within them to successfully navigate the course of life.
Why a horse? A horse constantly reacts to the participant’s internal emotions. They don’t judge, they are honest, they don’t lie and they provide instant and honest feedback because they do not overthink a participants motive. Our teachers deliver irrefutable results!!
