Join us to learn more about the world of Equine Facilitated Wellness, more specifically Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL). 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.

Please bring the following items:

-wear or bring weather appropriate layers of clothing and gloves, as we will be mainly inside, but outside briefly during the time they will be here

-horse safe footwear (some form of boot is ideal)

-slippers or extra socks for while in the mezzanine, as we will not have shoes on in there and it can get chilly on the feet at times

-filled water bottle

-bagged lunch
