The Herd by Horses team provide Equine Assisted Learning sessions in a controlled setting.
Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is experiential learning involving activities done with horses. Equine assisted learning is usually offered to groups.
The activities can help re-engage students in academic learning. It helps students with empowerment, leadership, team work, self-awareness, highlights strengths and develops communication skills.
The clients participate the activities with the horses on the ground, and the trained facilitators guide the process.
Rather than focusing on personal issues, the focus is on concepts and principals.
We are passionate about providing early intervention programmes to youth in our community. Statistics show that children with behavioural or mental/emotional issues are at higher risk of becoming involved in crime or self-destructive behaviour such as self-harm and suicide
What difference do the children/teenagers think the sessions make to them ?
” I listen more, don’t act up as much and get more out of being at school”
