Image_202206271349

If you are interested in working with horses and making a positive impact on the lives of humans that are working hard to improve their life skills, then please consider becoming a volunteer with our Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) program. EAL is an experiential learning approach that promotes the development of life skills through equine-assisted activities. Through interactions with the equines, participants learn a heightened self-awareness. Self-awarenessis important to reveal patterns of behavior and gives participants the opportunity to think in a new way. Equines provide us with the opportunity to experience humility, compassion, and challenge - all critical elements to supporting self-growth and self-awareness. The perfect candidate for this opportunity has strong horse skills and feels confident working closely with horses. Please contact Nicki Foote at Nicki.f@horseshelp.org for more information.
