What is EAL?
Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential approach to teaching life skills like leadership, communication and teamwork using horses. Our program is an objective based learning program where participants work on the ground with horses through carefully designed objective-based obstacles and problem solving exercises.
The horses’ sensitive nature, awareness of their surroundings and herd instincts make them exceptional teachers. Working together with groups and teams, horses look for a leader, the same kind of compassionate, clear and confident leader that people seek and through our many experiential programs they help gently guide participants, letting them know when they get it right and when they have opportunities to grow!
Wow that a GREAT Night! We had the pleasure of working with Whisper (the horse) are our teammate tonight. While being blindfolded and have to lead Whisper, with each other’s instruction, through obstacle courses, was really cool. It was amazing to see how Whisper would respond to us and how our voices, our body language guided her or not LOL. Great experience that I think all couples should do.
The Dreamwinds EAL program delivered unique and structured exercises that facilitated teamwork, communication, and active listening across my team. This experience was a great alternative to the “monthly boardroom meeting”, and motivated the team to act as a cohesive unit within a fun and safe environment. I would recommend Dreamwinds to any organization!
