Equine-Assisted Learning (as opposed to psychotherapy), or EAL, is a hands-on experiential process that allows natural interaction between humans and horses. There are endless ways to apply this approach to personal, professional and human development.
People treat horses the way they treat people, and the same communication patterns used to gain cooperation with people are also used with horses. The difference is that the horses always act the way they really feel and people often hide their true feelings. Horses have the innate ability to sense people’s true feelings and react to that energy. It is impossible to hide the human soul from the senses of the horse.
EAL is ideal for children, adolescents and adults seeking to develop the tools and strategies needed to make good choices. It’s a great way to experience the benefits of our programs for those not requiring psychotherapy.
