4 week session:  Mondays (June 4th- June 25th) from 5:30-7:00 PM

Why horses: Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) utilizes a mental health professional, an equine specialist, horses and clients to work on learning goals. Horses have mirror cells that help them mimic peoples’ behaviors and feelings.  EAL is not riding. It’s freely using the horses to develop relationships and use as metaphors in educational goals.  One might hear us ask “What are the horses doing”, because a horse can tell us a great deal about our thoughts and feelings. 

$100 fee per person for 4 sessions
