Service Description

Often referred to as Equine therapy or energy work, contemporary clinical research shows that close proximity to horses change the human brain wave patterns suggesting that humans can be transformed in a very positive way when in presence of horses. Appropriate interaction with horses can therefore prove therapeutic to adults and children alike. Equine Facilitated learning is an interaction between horses and people designed to promote experiential learning for all participants. EFL promotes strategies to attain healthier relationships that in turn can improve wider group and family dynamics. EFL sessions bring together horses and people in a safe, supervised space designed to elicit positive and empowering interaction. We offer both individual and term based programs. Our program includes a targeted program for the individual with a written review report if required by your plan. We combine EFL with all the skills of becoming a competent horse rider. Some of the activities we undertake are Liberty work, painting, grooming, taking care of your horse (ground work), bareback riding, saddle work and much more. Many of the skills learnt in the energy field of a horse can be transferred into the daily challenges of life. The work is delivered by Peter Bland and his team. Peter is a well known outdoor educator using the outdoors as a catalyst for transformation and building resilience. His work combines his fearless living approach to life in a safe way which empowers both children and adults to strive beyond their conditions.
