Join us to learn more about the world of Equine Facilitated Wellness, more specifically Equine Facilitated Learning . During our time together, you will learn more about what this type of equine therapy is all about, how it works and how it can be helpful for your students, clients and staff. We will explore how building a relationship with a horse during our programs, can provide many healing and empowering personal growth and learning opportunities for individuals. EFL is part of a rapidly growing industry in which trained professionals and horses partner to foster healing, provide learning and therapeutic growth opportunities for people. Ultimately individuals spend time directly with horses in a variety of different reflective, active and experiential activities.

Directions from the south end of Calgary

While on Macleod Trail south heading out of the city towards Okotoks ,do not take Deer Foot Trail, as you will end up on a wrong road, you will want to be in your right lane when you go through the last set of lights by the Spruce It Up Garden Center.   

  Once you pass the garden center you will be turning right, west, immediately at the top of the first small hill on to Highway 552. There is a sign for DeWinton, right before the turn. If you hit the next set of lights at Heritage Point and the turn to the hamlet of DeWinton etc, you have missed the turn and gone too far.   

Stay on 552 until you come to 306th Ave west.Once you are on 552, you will cross some train tracks and then keep heading straight. You will see a sign for the Calgary Polo Club on your right just before the turn. But you will be turning right, west, which is opposite of where the Polo Club is. 

Stay on 306th Ave until you come to 48th Street. Here you will turn left ,south, on to 48th Street. We are the first entrance on your right hand side.Turn right on to gravel driveway, through the large wooden beam structure, and follow up to the grey building.
