Equine Assisted Learning and 
Skills Development

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is similar to EAT in that it still involves the team of mental health professional and horse professional working with the clients and horses, but in these sessions the focus is on learning specific skills as defined by the client/s or referring agency for example, leadership skills for a school group.

Activities are set up which require the client/s to utilize and develop certain skills, for example, non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking and problem-solving, leadership, work, taking responsibility, teamwork and relationships and confidence.
