Jackie outlines the business benefits of Equine Assited Learning (EAL) in an article which you can find here.
Jackie is an organisational dynamics and leadership expert who designs and delivers experiential EAL programs for groups and individuals on a national scale. Her workshops are custom designed to support a wide range of learning goals and delivered as either a stand alone program, embedded in an inhouse corporate leadership program or custom designed in partnership with consultancy or coaching organisations.
There is no riding involved, all experiences with the horses will be from the ground and with safety always in mind. No horse experience required.
Our Equine Assisted Learning programs are successful for the following reasons.
Spending the day outside in nature, away from office distractions helps participants to ground, relax, be focused and therefore more open to learning.
The Way of The Horse
Horses are sentient beings with innate emotional intelligence and leadership skills that have supported them to live effectively in social groups (herds) for millions of years. Horses also live entirely in the present moment and use their whole of body/senses and we can learn energetic presence and awareness skills. And, when happy and healthy, horses have a very effective ability to self-regulate (deal effectively with stress) - something most of us need support with.
Horses are highly sensitive beings. They pick up intention and emotions by reading non -verbal body language and personal energy. They will react to you authentically without consideration of your title or position. Horse can help bring clarity to the question “How does my state of being influence those around me.”
The horses offer a safe way to experiment with changes in behaviour such as setting clearer boundaries, practicing deep listening skills or noticing the impact of shifting our emotional state.
In Equine Assisted Learning participants learn by doing and through being in relationship with the horses. The horses response will provide authentic feedback in a non-judgmental way about how the participants are showing up, mentally, emotionally and physically. The facilitators encourage participants to observe and reflect on the impact in real time, and make subtle changes noticing any shifts. This unique aspect of Equine Assisted Learning is where the power lies in this process.
Partnering with stunning natural equine venue in all major captial cities and regional areas.
