Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) programs is a combination of therapeutic riding and innovative programs with horses which takes into account a person’s physical, mental, emotional strengths and limitations. Our programs integrates current life issues with those that might arise in the future. We utilize our therapy dogs and rescued horses to achieve program goals for emotional growth and learning. EAL is an exciting new and growing field that has proven to be very effective in building confidence, improving communication skills, and providing personal insights that give participants fresh and effective problem solving tools to apply to everyday life's problems. Horses are among the most honest creatures on earth. Horses are very much like people in that they are a social herd animal, have distinct personalities, attitudes and moods. Most importantly, horses have the ability to mirror exactly what human body language is telling them.
