Equine Assisted Learning
ThorpeWood is graced with a herd of Icelandic horses that can help your organization in a very special way. Selected nonprofit groups can partner with ThorpeWood’s horses to experience Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) programs.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential learning approach that uses horses not as tools, but as active participants that help facilitate the learning experience for the human participants. By examining equine behavior, and how the horses may or may not react to us, we can better understand what may be more effective in our own human relationships. EAL combines human and equine training and relationship principles.
Who can benefit from EAL? Those organizations seeking creative ways to facilitate leadership training, team building, or communications training and enhancement. Groups looking to improve member’s self-esteem and confidence—the lessons to be learned from working with horses can be of benefit to so many.
ThorpeWood’s farm, known as Stoney Lick Farm, has a herd of eight Icelandic horses waiting to be partners in your equine assisted learning journey. Call us today!
