Equine Assisted Learning
Equine Assisted Learning is an experiential approach to teaching life skills using horses.
Who is EAL for?
EAL is for anyone who can benefit from strengthening their interpersonal skills, building confidence and relating more effectively with others. Whether you want to develop different communication methods, better listening skills and better teamwork abilities or simply cope with every day life and communicating with your family, EAL might be right for you.
EAL can contribute to :
Confidence & self esteem
Leadership & team building
Respect & trust
Verbal & non-verbal communication
What can you learn from a horse ? Horses will help you recognize opportunities for learning about yourself. Horses provide honest, instant feedback when we work with them. They don't judge, they don't over-think but they do challenge our behavior and leadership abilities.
They are flight animals and depend on their awareness to their surroundings for their survival. They can discern between calm and anxiety. They rely on the hierarchy of the herd. The rules are clear and they all have a role to play. When we work with them, we have to find our place in their team. They seek a confident leader who communicates clearly and consistently. But most of all they are simple : they react to external stimulus, they react to us. Trained EAL facilitators can help you understand what is happening within the horse - people team and apply the learning outside of the arena.
What do we offer?
Our life skills, leadership and communication programs are available in the following formats :
- single workshops of one hour
- 6 weeks, once a week
- personalised sessions to meet your needs (Team-building, office party, Birthday, girls' night...)
(Saturday afternoons or Monday evenings - subject to changes)
Our program foundation is the Cartier Farms EAL Building Block curriculum that was developed and tested through research. Our exercises are objective based to provide a proven methodical approach to learning and development.
Because EAL is designed to be interactive and individually stimulating while working with team members, we will require a minimum of 4 participants to run a session.
