We use Equine Assisted Socio-Emotional Learning which provides an opportunity to develop self-awareness, empathy, and interpersonal skills. Participants gain tools for coping with emotions and stress and leave with renewed confidence, empowered to face new challenges. We achieve this by developing relationships between horses and humans through a variety of experiences. These can include one-on-one time with a horse, grooming exercises to build connection, and leading a horse in the arena to develop and strengthen regulation of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Please Note: Our programs are ground-based; participants build relationships with feet on the ground, not in the stirrups. Horse experience is not required. The program is designed to build on itself week to week and is tailored to the pace of each individual.
