THE YOUTH EXPERIENCE
The Equine Assisted Learning experience was a great program for our kids. The students were eager to participate and share their experiences with others. Teachers have noticed and commented on these students being more assertive, communicating their needs better and they seem more resilient when confronted by problems or obstacles. Parents have also provided positive feedback saying they have noticed a change in their children even in such a short time."
Today was really great. I’m glad I came because I was having a really awful day in the beginning of the morning and I just wanted to stay home but hanging out with the horses always puts me in a good mood because one of them remind me of my best friend (the person) who has helped cheer me up through all my hard times. I really love coming here because it makes me remember that life is good no matter what.
I will admit I’m scared to leave. You all have been so positive for me.
I was feeling overwhelmed and stresses before coming into Equine, now I’m relaxed and happy. I’m happy that I get this opportunity to diffuse my emotions. I feel so much better having worked with the horses.
I had fun and I haven’t had fun in a while, I can’t wait to come back.
THE ADULT EXPERIENCE
I was somewhat skeptical about this program at the outset but after my first session I came away a firm believer that working with horses can not only help individuals to better understand themselves but can also be instrumental in developing effective teams that are aligned and working towards a common purpose. The fact that the benefits are evident almost immediately makes for a fantastic team building event that can actually produce results.

We found the team building session to be very informative and a unique way to connect with each other on a new level. The communication skills needed to work as a team are vital to the success of our organization and the team found it enlightening to see how the smallest thing affects us all.
