EAL SERVICES

Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is specially designed learning experiences involving horses. As a certified and insured EAPD coach (Equine Assisted Personal Development Coach), I'm able to guide a learner through custom exercise with horses. Through a lifetime of experience and my coaching experience, I'm able to observe the non-verbal communication of a horse and guide the client towards a positive outcome for each session. 

Often a horse will choose its person and it's my job to facilitate those interactions. By reading them together, using their reactions as a barometer, I'm able to gain insight into the learner's personality and further guide the exercises. We have several horses here on the farm; each with their own history and experiences. We have the option to hand-pick who we'll use and tailor the exercises for each combination. This is a highly individual approach and allows the freedom to fit the needs of each learner as a person.

Sessions always start with an initial Meet-n-Greet. Full visits start at $65.

RIDING LESSONS

We're happy to offer beginner riding lessons on our horses! Want to learn how to ride but not sure where to start? We can work from the ground up, building trust and confidence before even getting on the horse. We teach horsemanship, and safety, and make sure all clients are set for success. We have a few different horses for each rider type and ability and all lessons are done privately to make sure clients get the most instruction time possible.

Riding lessons are a fabulous way to build confidence and self-esteem and empower young riders. Each one is done uniquely for each client.

Lessons are for ages 6+, but we can do guided pony rides for those under 6. We still teach, but the pony will be led by a staff member for the safety of the rider. Lessons are $45 when booked per month for 30 minutes and are always one-to-one, or $50 when booked individually.

 

Summer Camp

SUMMER CAMP

Our 2024 Summer Day Camp registration is in the works. Spots are already being booked; we have small groups each session so we can focus on each individual rider. That way we can empower and support them uniquely, and because of our small groups, our sessions tend to fill up quickly. Applications are now being accepted, please let us know if you'd like one. Dates and details available on the application.

Activities include a daily riding lesson, horsemanship, grooming, games, crafts and more.  We end each session with a mini horse show for campers to show parents/grandparents 

Campers must be at least 6 years old at the time of attendance.  Camp runs 9-3pm.  Possibility of extended hours if required.
