Equine Facilitated Learning and Coaching
Equine facilitated learning and coaching (EFLC) is the discipline of using horses as a means to help individuals of all ages promote emotional growth, learning, and self-enrichment. Horses have an amazing gift in helping people move from the paralyzing effects of hardship and trauma into renewed strength, empowerment, purpose, joy, love, and peace. Horses are also wonderful in helping reduce stress and anxiety. They have an extraordinary ability to bring about calm feelings with unconditional love, acceptance, and affection. It is a wonderful resource for making life-long changes for a happier and more fulfilling life.

Activities may include anything from grooming, leading, groundwork and horsemanship, customized activities with the horse, and riding the horse. Activities may also include education about horse behavior and caring for a horse. By learning how horses learn, react, and follow instructions from the participant, he or she gains a better understanding of his or her own emotions, behaviors, and body language. Sessions and activities are customized for each client. We offer individual sessions and/or specific programs. Following are some of the benefits that
• Rebuilding self esteem and self worth
