Assisted Learning?
 
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an innovative mental health and education intervention. Through observation and understanding of horse behaviour, EAL uses specially trained Equine Facilitators and activities with horses as a tool to help those who are vulnerable and at risk reflect on their own anxieties and behaviour. This leads to greater resilience, improved social skills and emotional growth. There is no riding involved and the horses are carefully chosen so they are safe to handle and be around.
