“Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much” – Helen Keller


Who We Are

We are a passionate bunch that live and breathe our core values to deliver unforgettable experiences to our clients every day. But Team Dreamwinds is much more than that, it is a vast network within our community that never ceases to amaze us with their ongoing support.

Our Facilitators – A dedicated network of Certified EAL Facilitators that are the best in the industry and bring a variety of knowledge and experience. No matter who the client, we understand and can speak their language to provide a valuable and relevant program experience.

Our Horses – Our horses are carefully selected to ensure they are safe and of sound mind and body.   We choose horses that are fit and active in another discipline so that they are continuously challenged and engaged both inside and outside of EAL.

Our Partners – We are so fortunate to be partnered with the original founders of the Cartier EAL Facilitator Certification Program.  Their program is second to none in the EAL Industry and we are proud to be working together to bring unlimited continuing education opportunities to our graduates.  We couldn’t ask for better partners, mentors and friends.
