Educational and experiential skills programs that are facilitated within a group format and focuses on ground activities that are objectively driven rather than horseback riding.
By including horses in specially designed educational experiences, equine-assisted specialists have significantly multiplied the participant’s rate of success to self-discovery. Whether it’s your next career with a horse, a team building event, women’s workshop, or helping youth to build life skills - it is truly unforgettable learning.
They are just like us - sort of.
Horses have a lot to teach us! Herds to horses are just like teams to people. Horses have natural "herd behaviours" that require trust, respect and teamwork from all members of the team. Quite simply, the horse does the teaching; facilitators are there to offer an explanation and provide guidance as they work through the solution.
Working with horses creates memories that we can apply to our lives and retain far longer than sitting in ‘just another classroom'.
Equine Connection is a top-notch service provider. Their program provided a unique combination of leadership and experiential education. The program works for everyone and is highly recommended for all. In my capacity in auditing the risk management and safety of the program, I found a program that put participant safety first and achieved a very positive one-sided Benefit to risk ratio. ~ Greg McDougall Owner/Consultant at McDougall Risk Consulting
