How can horses help people?



"For years I have observed the interaction between clients and horses and recognise the impact that this has on people's lives.  Training with and being part of the EAQ Network for three years gave me the opportunity to develop this further"   June

What is equine assisted learning?

Children and adults have the opportnity to engage in learning through participating in therapeutic activities with horses.  There is no riding involved and the horses are carefully chosen so that they are safe to handle and be around.

Who can benefit from this approach?

Individual needs are addressed such as

*     confidence and self esteem
*     self awareness
*     social skills
*     team building
*     relationships
*     communication skills
*     literacy and numeracy
*     eating disorders

This method of learning is particularly good to help those who:

*     want to change established behaviour patterns
*     need help with their own personal development
*     are excluded from school
*     are likely to be excluded from school
*     have autism spectrum condition
*     have ADHD
*     have difficulties with traditional schooling
*     have special educational needs



What happens in a session?

Sessions are usually one to thee hours long and tailored to meet the needs of each individual.  Learners can come on a one to one basis or be part of a small group.  Usually learners attend once a week for between 6 and 10 weeks.
