Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential approach working with the horse on the ground, helping the participant to explore body language and behaviour as well as reflecting on the relationships around them and their own emotions. EAL helps young people set and work towards personal goals, develop confidence and overcome fears, as well as developing problem solving skills. Our programme explores identity, family history, dreams, goals, friendships, communication, boundaries and other areas tailored to individual needs.

EAL Referral Information

EAL is suitable for young people who have an interest in horses, like being outdoors and may be struggling in the educational or home setting due to behavioural, emotional, social and or learning difficulties / disabilities.

Young people are referred to this programme from Social Services, Schools, Local Education Authorities, Pupil Referral Units, Youth Services, and Parents. We can work with young people in small groups, if appropriate, but most of our work is 1-1.

Pricing

Prices can vary according to the needs of the young person or mentor to young person ratio. Most sessions are priced at £520 per term (the equine programme is charged at a higher rate to partially compensate for the higher costs of looking after the horses) which includes a fee to AQA Unit Award Scheme so the young people can gain certification for their learning.
