Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential learning approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through ground based activities with horses.
At Circle “C”, we use EAL in order to offer a unique and meaningful learning experience in a relaxing setting far from the hustle and stress of everyday life. Our trained professional facilitators assess the needs, goals and desires of participants and teams. Along with our horses, and with plenty of TLC, we create a setting and a safe space for our clients to explore, discover and grow.
Participants learn about themselves and others through experiencing the activity, the horses’ actions, & their own emotions in the moment. Unique advantages of using horses, which are emotional, social animals that provide immediate feedback to participants & facilitators. These interactions provide wonderful opportunities for self-discovery and a safe way to identify emotions and behavioral patterns.
EAL provides an accelerated learning experience; participants leave each session with tools they can immediately apply in their life, at any age.
