What is Equine Assisted Learning?

To put it simply, Equine Assisted Learning is a learner established educational, experiential program that is facilitated within a group format and focuses on ground activities rather than horseback riding. More specifically, Equine Assisted Learning is a horse course with an effective solution to human development that promotes individual and group growth. Participants participate in objectively driven exercises and also find themselves learning valuable life skills in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Equine Assisted Learning has turned out to be useful, strong, positive, educational, and creative. The Academy of Equine Assisted Learning's program highlights a curriculum of 8-12 weeks also includes 15 exercises of facilitating life skills through positively augmented interaction with horses.

The horse's jobs are speaking to the clients through their bodies to help bring about the changes the customers need to make. Exercises are developed to encourage self-confidence through validated, hands-on experiences. Equine Assisted Learning through the Equine Connection is not equine therapy even though we are aware that therapy exists whenever we're near horses. We don't call for a clinical professional with us to do these programs and exercises offered to you on your horse program. This is a great addition for therapists, counselors and psychiatrists that are wanting to work with the horse to aid their customers in treatment. The people are permitted to find answers to their own lives and move forward with newly acquired skills. Equine Assisted Learning functions, because the teachers will be the horses!


The people build skills while listening to what the horses tell them they need to say or do to move forward, not only in the program, but in their lives. The people solve their problems because they have the answers inside - they just need help from the horse to find those solutions. Our horse course is not a bandage effect for humans; it's life changing with proven results.

Albert Wight studied methods of education extensively and concluded a need for change from the traditional classroom and lecture format to an educational alternative called "participative method", which focuses on the experiential process of learning rather than the mere transmission of information. Experiential learning has recently been termed "the natural way of learning" and defined as the process by which the experience of the learner is reflected upon, from which new insights emerge.

We work with the originator and designer of this objectively driven Equine Assisted Learning curriculum who created all the programs through research based on how human beings learn and how wild horses communicate, and then she brought these two research pieces together to create all of these objectively driven programs. Each program has an objective that is interlaced in the next program so that your participants keep learning and building stronger skills each week, hence, creating an armour of skills to take into the world and with a Certification that is proven to work. The sky is the limit where you can use your Certification in the world today. Research study provided in your certification.

This program is Globally Certified and regulated through the Equine Assisted Learning Network.
