Horses as Teachers Program

The program is a learning program where participants are provided with the opportunity to experience a new way of being and behaving through experiments with horses. This is a social and emotional learning program where participants discover how horses survive and thrive and use this learning to adapt to their daily lives to improve health and wellbeing. In this equine assisted learning program we will be observing and interacting with horses with plenty of touching, grooming, and leading the horses. The program is run outdoors, in nature and provides the opportunity for participants to learn new skills.
