The way individuals interact and react with horses is very similar to the way they interact with their clients, customers, peers, and work groups. People interpret horse behavior/emotions through the lens of their personal perception. How they interpret horses can often be a metaphor for their work, attitudes, and relationships.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential approach that fosters real lasting change. It is a unique opportunity that goes beyond traditional leadership programs to restore balance in people’s lives while teaching critical thinking, clear communication and social skills. A typical workshop involves activities on the ground with the horses (there is no riding), which provides opportunities for team discovery through experiential learning. Prior horse experience is not necessary to benefit from this program.
“This experience was educational, thought-provoking and emotionally moving. I would never have given credibility to the concept of equating an equine environment to my own work environment without experiencing it first-hand. The passion of the presenters was clear and awe-inspiring. I felt truly destressed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Thank you for the opportunity!”

“The staff had to experiment and problem solve and find their own solutions that worked best for them. There were hidden skills that came out that they didn’t know they had.”
