Equine Facilitated Learning


Equine-Facilitated Learning is an experiential learning approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional, and personal goals through equine-assisted activities.

We offer outdoor Equine programming for Children, Adolescents, adults, and groups.

All programming designed and implemented by a Master's Level Clinician. All staff Certified Equine Specialists. We offer therapeutic programs as well as Experientials.

Make your appointment and come spend an hour or two or an afternoon with the herd.

This is a non mounted program ( no riding) that facilitates human interaction with the horse in their natural surroundings. This can include: walk with the herd, breathe with the herd, feel the energies with the herd. If you need a more grounded approach we offer grooming, education, mandala building, creative writing and expressive art.
