EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING (EAL)

EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING HORSES FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING WITH CORPORATIONS

WHAT IS EAL

Equine-assisted learning is similar to equine-assisted therapy and still involves the horse,  a therapist, and a horse expert. In equine-assisted learning sessions, however, the focus is on learning specific skills. 

SKILLS BUILDING FOR THE WORKPLACE

  • Businesses and corporations use equine assisted learning to help train and develop their staff. Many of the skills employees learn in these small group sessions translate well into the business world. Because the environment is so different from what you're used to, it will help employees to think more creatively. 


  • The kinds of skills employees can learn in equine assisted learning sessions include:  leadership,  problem-solving,  teamwork,  assertiveness,  creative thinking,  confidence, communication, and more.


  • EAL offers a new way of exploring feelings. How an employee feels and interacts with coworkers is equally as important as what they know. 


  • Will it work for me?  EAL has proven incredibly popular with employers and employees as a useful professional development tool. 

 

  • Employers and employees do not need any previous experience with horses. They do not have to be die-hard animal lovers to benefit from this learning approach.  

WORKPLACE PRODUCTIVITY

  • Rather than focusing on personal issues, EAL focuses on concepts and principles. 


  • Studies have shown that a gap in basic interpersonal skills among company employees affects company success and increases turnover rates. 

  

  • Typically, EAL is an activity with the horses on the ground, examining the patterns that emerge from the responses of the horses in the interaction. A trained facilitator guides the learning process. How individuals approach the activity carries back to the workplace in new awareness of, and change in, productive behavior that enhances the bottom line.

EAL IS CORPORATE "CUTTING EDGE"

  • Equine assisted experiential learning is a cutting edge, very effective short-term approach to professional development training.


  • It offers a refreshing venue for training, where as, most training is conducted in a room, classroom, or online training format. Employees return to workplace refreshed and energized.


  • With this non-traditional, experiential approach, it is likely employees will be focused on EAL tasks at hand and internalize, retain, and utilize the skills learned. 


  • It is a memorable experience to work with horses. They build character, self awareness, and self esteem that employees will recall and value for years to come.

   

EAL TRAINING FORMAT

  Why Horses?

  • Working with equines provides opportunities to teach critical life skills such as trust, respect, honesty and communication. 
  • Generally, animal therapy, and in particular, equine-assisted learning, has been found to increase resilience, self-confidence and self-awareness in participants.
  • Equines use mostly non-vocal communication and are in-tune with human behavior. 
  • Equines ask people to be aware of their surroundings at all times. Through interactions with horses, participants learn a heightened self-awareness. Self-awareness is important in order to reveal patterns of behavior and gives participants the opportunity to think in a new way. 
  • Participants gain self-esteem and self-confidence while learning how to work with such a large and powerful creature.
