Frequently Asked Questions
What is Equine Assisted Learning?
Equine Assisted Learning merges an ancient teaching method with horses to create a new, dynamic approach to self-discovery. For more details, check out our comprehensive definition.
Do I need any prior experience with horses?
You need no prior experience with horses. In all of our workshops, your feet never leave the ground. We carefully select therapy horses that are calm and gentle.
What should I wear?
Our EAL workshops take place in an indoor arena, located on a peaceful, forty-acre farm. While we do our best to keep the farm clean, it is a working farm. You may get a little dirty. The arena’s footing contains mostly soft, brown dirt. And the outdoor areas are either grass, gravel, or dirt.
We recommend wearing boots and blue jeans. If you don't have boots, that's okay! Just wear closed-toed shoes. Don’t dress in anything you don't mind washing afterward. That way, you can relax and enjoy the experience.
Can my children join a workshop?
Absolutely. We would love your children to join you in a workshop. Our pony, Whinny, loves children. Kids eight years and older can take part in family and group events.
Please contact us if you have any hesitations or concerns. Fill out a contact form here, or email us anytime. We usually answer within one business day.
Can I choose a horse to work with?
Yes, you can. If you've read our herd page and have decided on a specific horse, let us know.
However, we find part of the EAL experience often revolves around quiet moments of spontaneity. Arriving with nothing but an open mind can result in the most meaningful connections with our horses.
