What is EAL?
Equine Assistant Learning refers to activities done with horses geared toward experiential learning. These activities can be used to re-engage students in relationship building, connection and trust. Typically, the children participate in activities with the horses on the ground, and the facilitators guide the learning process. The emphasis is on concepts and principles that focus on character development and interpersonal interactions. The program is not focused on individual issues and is not a replacement for therapy.
