I dont like working in teams, can I work individually with a horse?
Working in team makes you get out of your bubble and try new things. Its not scary, its just fun and new!
Horses have a way of getting through to people when other people can't. They don't judge, lie, or pick favorites; there is no fooling them. By being themselves and reacting to people the same way they react to other horses. They can bring to light unnoticed behavior and body language the participant demonstrates; making it clearer to the facilitator on how to challenge the particpant into success and self discovery.
How is Equine Assisted Learning different from other programs?
We are a program that lets the horse do the teaching. Our facilitators are trained specifically to look for openings during the weekly sessions to assist participants in reading the horse and their partner.
