What is Equine Assisted Learning?
Equine assisted learning is a way of helping individuals achieve their goals through interaction with horses. Many more people are now able to benefit from the opening of a number of EAQ Approved equine assisted learning centres. Children, young people and adults have the opportunity to engage in learning through participating in therapeutic activities with horses. There is no riding involved and the horses are carefully chosen so that they are safe to handle and be around.
