An Introduction to Dreamwinds EAL

What is EAL?

Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL)  is an experiential approach to teaching life skills like leadership, communication and teamwork using horses. Our program is an objective based learning program where participants work on the ground with horses through carefully designed objective-based obstacles and problem solving exercises.

The horses’ sensitive nature, awareness of their surroundings and herd instincts make them exceptional teachers.  Working together with groups and teams, horses look for a leader, the same kind of compassionate, clear and confident leader that people seek and through our many experiential programs they help gently guide participants, letting them know when they get it right and when they have opportunities to grow!
