Equine Assisted Learning (EAL)
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an opportunity to build skills such as leadership, trust, assertiveness, self-confidence, patience, communication, decision making, and team building, etc. Time spent with the horses involves ground only activities and does not involve any mounted or riding activities. Prior horse knowledge is not required. Each session is customized for the participant(s) based on the skill(s) selected by the individual or group. Groups such as educators, first responders, church staff, sports teams, youth organizations and businesses can provide sessions for continuing education hours and/or unique interaction for its members that cannot be duplicated in a school, medical facility or office setting.
Why horses? Utilizing horses for growth and learning is an experiential modality. Horses are sensitive to non-verbal communication and are fully present to experience the ground activities with clients. That means while interacting with the horses, clients can receive valuable non-judgmental feedback. During the debriefing, clients will have an opportunity to reflect on what occurred in the horse arena and apply it to the arena of life. Experiencing the growth of a selected and identifiable skill in the arena can truly be a “hands-on” experience that clients remember and build upon long after they leave the arena.
Life brings challenges. Challenges are an opportunity to build skills and grow. Born2Be TEC is here to help you build identifiable skills to meet the challenges you face. To get started, see the details below:
