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 $60.

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 $40 for 30 minutes and are always one-to-one.

PONY PROGRAMS

Introducing Paddock Pals, a 4 week series learning about horses and ponies.  Each week we‘ll learn something new.  The hour-long session will be split into two sections; the first portion will be learning together with activity sheets and instruction, the second portion will be hands-on learning with the ponies.  Week 4 will be all about riding.  We’ll apply everything we’ve learned in the previous weeks and culminate the whole series with a ride!

 

Week 1:  Parts of the Horse

Week 2:  Colours and Markings

Week 3:  Grooming and Tack

Week 4:  Riding

Each session is $25.  Enrollment is limited to 4 participants and they must sign up for all 4 sessions. We’ll run two sessions per night and group participants by similar age.  We will organize different levels of Paddock Pals throughout the season so that participants can graduate to higher levels.
