Interacting with horses through simple, goal-oriented activities will help you to learn more about yourself and others in a way that is easy to apply to your personal and professional life.
People typically learn best by doing and equine-assisted work is both hands-on and engaging. You’ll interact with our horses in a safe, enclosed area and remain on the ground – there is no riding or horsemanship involved. Anyone can take part, even if you have never been near a horse before.
Horses are a lot like us socially and they can read and respond to our non-verbal messages, making them great teachers. They react in ways that feel familiar to experiences in our everyday lives. When we work on our challenges with them, we also learn how to improve ourselves in other situations.
The equine-assisted learning approach is effective for individuals, whānau, business people and corporate groups who are facing everyday challenges. It can be particularly successful for people who find social situations and traditional learning environments difficult. We regularly work with vulnerable young people and people with disabilities. Our facilities are fully accessible and safe.
