What is EAL?
Equine Assisted Learning is an experiential learning system - meaning you learn by experiencing interactions with horses! As prey animals, horses are very aware of their surroundings. They react honestly and immediately to situations and stimuli. They are sensitive, intuitive and forgiving in relationships with both their peers (pasture mates) and humans. Horses thrive in a herd, much like how humans thrive in a family or community. They need a leader and feel safety in numbers. Also like humans, they have similar needs - to be respected, to feel safe and a have a sense of belonging. The EAL facilitation process
