Inspired Equine Assisted Learning CIC – Horses Helping

Back to Activities
Last Updated: 06/02/2024

Spending time with our horses will positively and permanently change your life! Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is a unique learning experience that uses horses as active participants; it does not involve riding and no prior experience with horses is required.

Sessions will take place in the indoor or outdoor arena, on the yard and in the paddocks and shelters.

Basic activities include:

Health & safety

Grooming horses

Leading/long-reining horses

Preparing hays & feeds

Stable management tasks

Each session will be taken by a Senior Facilitator who will be helped by two Facilitators. Typically, two horses will be used for the EAL session. The work-experience will include preparing hays/feeds, mucking out and other physical activities.

This is good for wellbeing because

  • It offers peer-to-peer support, leadership, teamwork, encouraging others and effective communication.
  • It encourages participants to practice grooming and leading to develop confidence, coordination, control of personal energy, movement, and emotions.
  • It teaches participants to understand how horses use body language to communicate and learn how our body language can influence others.
