Equine Assisted Learning

Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) is an experiential approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional, or personal goals through equine-assisted activities. In EAL, equine-human interaction is guided by a planned learning experience to meet the identified goals or desires of the participants.

Flying Bee Farms offers two EAL programs:


Horse Powered Reading engages the mind, body, and emotions of struggling readers with horses, around games and activities to learn critical reading skills.




Horse Sense Leadership is another part of our Equine Assisted Learning Program: What Can Business Leaders, Managers, Supervisors Learn from Horses?





Horse Powered Reading

Horse Sense Leadership

EAL involves hands-on experiences with horses, allowing participants to learn through direct interaction and reflection.

Life Skills Development: EAL aims to enhance various life skills, including communication, problem-solving, leadership, teamwork, empathy, and self-awareness.

Guided Activities: Trained professionals facilitate EAL sessions, designing activities that incorporate horses to address specific learning objectives.

Personal Growth: Participants engage in activities such as grooming, leading, or observing horses, which can lead to personal growth and self-discovery.

Non-Riding Approach: Unlike therapeutic riding, EAL does not focus on riding skills but emphasizes the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of learning.

Benefits: EAL can benefit individuals of all ages, including children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. It is used in educational settings, corporate team-building, therapy, and personal development.
