What is Equine Assisted Learning?
Equine assisted learning provides you with the opportunity to engage in experiental learning through participating in facilitated activities with horses. There is no riding involved and no previous horse experience necessary.
Horses live in the moment. They respond instinctively to subtle non -verbal communication and body language, giving instant feedback. They do not have prejudices and are not judgemental but they do reflect your energy, emotion and motivation . . . change and see how they change too!
Our role as facilitators is to allow the learning to happen with minimal interference. All activities start with an instruction. Reflecting on the journey to the end result(whatever that might be) is where the insights are gained. We will assist this reflection with questions to draw out individual observations as well as sharing our own.
"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." Sir Winston Churchill.
"To change a horses behaviour we need to change something in ourselves"
