Equine-Assisted Learning facilitates educational, personal, and professional growth by developing social/emotional and life skills through horsemanship. Participants work under the direction of a life coach and expert horse handler who help them carry out ground tasks such as grooming, leading, and exercises that promote the human-animal bond.
Through experiential learning, participants develop trust, confidence, critical thinking skills, self-esteem, and socialization. Studies have shown that development is suspended in children when they suffer from trauma at the age they were exposed to that trauma. Equine-assisted learning helps to bridge the gap and allows adolescents to develop those life skills in a fun and educational way. Individuals with PTS, like horses, face ongoing concerns about trust and safety. Participants in EAL with PTS have benefited from increased self-awareness, reduced anxiety, and improved communication. Equine-Assisted Learning is successful because, as humans, our instinct is to connect with nature and other living, a human trait called biophilia.
When participants are paired with a horse, we want to work with the animal and gain its trust. Through collaboration, we can create circumstances that create self-exploration and lead to personal growth. The process leads to self-experimentation outside of the experience that can form positive traits. Through our Equine-Assisted Learning, we can help members of our community heal and reach their full potential.
