Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential approach to teaching life skills using horses. You will be put through a series of exercises with challenges to solve as a group (with people and a horse). EAL is for anyone who can benefit from strengthening their interpersonal skills, building confidence and relating more effectively with others. Whether you want to develop different communication methods, better listening skills and better teamwork abilities or simply cope with everyday life and communicating with your family, EAL might be right for you. From 8 years old onwards. There is no riding involved and you do not require any horse experience. For more information contact Jasmine at venturestablespei@gmail.com or call 902-247-0195

The most asked question is “WHY HORSES”?

Here are some of the reasons horses are so suited to this profession:

  • Horses are sensitive, aware of their surroundings and quick to react. 
  • They watch for the slightest movement and look for threatening body posture.
  • Horses know how to discern the difference between a calm, non-threatening approach and anxious, nervous energy. 

 However, every horse is different just as each person is unique.

In a horse’s world, the boundaries are clear and easy to understand. Horses look for strong leadership and are willing to follow after they find respect and trust. If we provide contradictory behavior they start to question and challenge our authority to lead.

In a horse’s world, team work is expected and respected. Horses respect fair consequences. Horses cannot lie or over think a situation. They approach honestly to every interaction. Learning to listen to what horses have to say is powerful and can sometimes be the catalyst to individual change.

Horses react to stimulus and provide a skilled facilitator with an opportunity use the horse as a barometer. By their intuitive nature, horses can provide facilitators with a window into the participant’s personality. Through the discovery of how sensitive horses are, how kind and forgiving they can be, we can guide participants to becoming better individuals through identifying specific horse behaviors.
