Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential learning process that uses therapy horses to meet the goals of different community groups.

Since horses communicate non-verbally, they are wonderful teachers of how our non-verbal communication might impact others. The horses respond quickly to changes in our behavior, offering constant feedback and timely rewards or consequences for our actions. EAL allows individuals to grow in communication, awareness, observation, focus, work ethic, self-esteem and self-confidence. All activities are done on the ground with the supervision of a Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor working to meet goals using various activities such as grooming, longeing, leading and much more.

We Can Ride offers EAL to groups of ten or less. Our clients come from schools, scouts, adult and elder care, religious organizations, group homes, sports teams, summer camps and more. Sessions run for one or two hours at a time and can be scheduled individually or in a package of multiple weeks. Helmets provided by We Can Ride will be fitted on the first day. Close toed shoes are required – Crocs, boat shoes and sandals are not allowed.
