Horses Helping Humans

Horses are the heart and soul of our program. Equine-assisted learning (EAL) is a way of interacting and communicating with horses that brings change and healing to the person.

The process of EAL helps people realize where healing and change need to take place. Horses are highly sensitive to human emotion; their ability to instantly react to the handler's emotions and behaviour provides non-judgmental and unbiased feedback to the client.  The relationship builds as the participant and their horse begin to understand one another and find comfort in their silent communication.

To live in the moment.

The process of EAL helps people realize where healing and change need to take place. Horses are highly sensitive to human emotion; their ability to instantly react to the handler's emotions and behaviour provides non-judgmental and unbiased feedback to the client.  The relationship builds as the participant and their horse begin to understand one another and find comfort in their silent communication.

Our workshops are based on the belief that every client can find their solutions, and our horses and facilitators offer the opportunity to discover those life skills. Our clients explore their challenges and goals using the horses as a medium to bring positive change and understanding. Challenges can be anxiety, self-doubt, stress and or depression. We offer groundwork sessions that include confidence building, mindfulness, teamwork and leadership skills, stress reduction and focus.
