Let’s help our kids to build an armour of skills so they know how to protect themselves and move forward with all that life throws at them and have self-awareness about their own behaviour through our powerful teacher, the horse.
Our unique approach harnesses the immense power of horses who accept participants without judgment. They respond to energy, intentions, actions and body language.
All our experiential programs for children and teens are not only educational but have been designed for them to acquire strength-based life skills such as effective communication, enhanced problem solving, a better understanding of body language, and respecting personal boundaries, among others.
No prior experience necessary – no riding – participants partner with their horse from the ground.
Our programs include:
One of the many bonuses of working with horses vs a classroom setting is the component of interactivity because we all learn differently, but we can all take away lessons that we learn through our experiences. Each of our exercises is custom designed to maximize learning potential and focus on developing individual skills as they work through each fun interactive group challenge.
Equine Assisted Learning acts as an important educational tool to help to develop empathy and kindness as well as combat;
What can a 400+ kg teacher do for our kids?
The value of working with horses as a teaching tool to learn new skills have been proven time and time again in the teaching of young people and especially teenagers. The use of an equine assisted learning program is a unique way to teach young people.
What if we could have a window into our own behaviours?
Horses understand how to differentiate between potentially threatening behaviour and a calm and assertive nature. Children and teens who have the chance to work with our youth development programs are able to learn how to modify their behaviour through sets of exercises that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. This type of teaching cannot be delivered in a classroom. It is the experience of being in close contact with horses that has the most effect on young people.
