Why Horses?

Horses are prey animals, and because they live in the present moment they’ll adjust to their current environment and the beings around them; they accurately assess the authentic emotions that surround them.

Horses are among the best teachers and guides for personal growth and development. Being sensitive to the environment for their survival, horses respond to both positive and negative changes in posture, stance and breathing with other animals and people. Horses provide constant feedback through their whole body to incongruence between feelings and behaviors. This allows them to respond honestly and to be non-judgemental mirrors and teachers of our conscious and unconscious feelings and behaviors. Individuals learn how to use emotional, mental and physical cues within themselves and others to support their personal development. This creates an opportunity for profound healing in all aspects of their lives.

The experiential nature of Equine Assisted Learning Center (EALC) provides an opportunity for people to fully participate with their mind, body and spirit. EALC is based on the belief that people learn best through direct and purposeful contact with their learning experience, and can alter the way they feel, think and behave beyond habitual barriers and resistance accumulated through life. 


THE FOUNDERS & FACILITATORS
