It is a recognized and innovative approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through equine-assisted activities. Through interactions with the horses, participants learn a heightened self-awareness. It is a process where people work with horses to develop their emotional growth, personal awareness, relationships, and trust, e.g. boundary setting, team work, communication and problem solving.
This is an introduction/taster workshop in which participants will experience first hand the positive effects of Equine Assisted Learning (EAL). We will cover areas such as:
• Principles and theoretical foundations of
• Who can benefit and how?
• The horse as co facilitator: Horse behavior, horse handling and Horse Use ethics
• What activities can we engage in?
• The importance of observation and feed back
This method does NOT involve horse riding and does not require any experience in horsemanship.
