Just like us humans, safety and trust are most important for horses.  Our Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) sessions and programs help children, teens and adults dealing with:

Anxiety | Depression | Grief | PTSD | ADHD | Emotional regulation | Self-confidence | Relationship boundaries

The sessions are always hands-on, practical and engaged with the horse. The environment is calm and kind, surrounded by beautiful nature and animals. Individual and small group sessions are available. There is no horse experience required at all.
