What is Equine Assisted Learning?


Join us for an experience of discovery…


Through equine assisted and experiential learning sessions, our horses can help guide you in discovering effective life tools and strategies to enhance your self-awareness, change your limiting beliefs, for personal growth and transformation through Awareness – Alignment – Action.

  • Horses help us bring focus and attention to the present moment.
  • Engaging with horses requires clear and consistent communication.
  • Horses pick up on our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours and they respond to these when we interact with them. Therefore, with the help of an equine assisted learning facilitator, being with horses can help us understand ourselves better and gain valuable insights inspiring change.

  • An outdoor, nature-based model that takes you out of your head and into your body
  • An opportunity to become aware of patterns that are no longer serving you
  • A safe, respectful environment to learn new life skills and tools through the feedback the horses can provide
  • Aha moments of awareness and breakthroughs in as little as one EAL session?

The Role of the Horse in Equine-Assisted Learning

For more clarity and understanding about Equine Assisted Learning sessions with the horses at Ravenheart;

  • We don’t ride the horses
  • It is not just for horse people, but for everyone – no experience necessary
  • It is not about learning about horses, or horsemanship
  • You don’t “love” horses, that’s ok. Horses don’t care and yet they can still help you love yourself
  • Oh, yes, what about FEAR? Fear is real, and horses are large, flighty animals. It is good to have a healthy fear, and a beginners mind too! We are mindful of wherever you are on the fear scale, and modify sessions to help everyone feel safe and comfortable, including the horses!

Learning programs and sessions are available for your organization, teen & youth groups, residential programs, veterans, and seniors, that are leading-edge, effective and innovative.

Please contact us by email : ravenheart@sasktel.net or call 306-542-3557 for more information.

“Have compassion for yourself and others. Everyone is doing the best they can based on their life experiences. Everyone is learning and growing, and so are you.” –Doc Childre


 How can you benefit from Equine Assisted Learning?

trio with horse

Interacting with horses, mostly at liberty (without tack/equipment/tethering) offers an opportunity to connect in a natural and authentic way. The insights discovered during an EAL session can be transferred to our day-to-day lives, our relationships, careers, health and well-being, and spiritual awakening. Horses can mirror our strengths, challenges, fears, and authentic expression.

Nervous or afraid of horses? That’s ok. Sessions can be designed so that participants can benefit from the other side of the fence!

Individual and/or group sessions are available. Sessions include time for quiet reflection with the herd, interactive experiences with the horses,and the opportunity to share insights and integrate wisdom received from the horses.

Sessions can also be customized to include meditation,  intuitive and mindfulness exercises, creativity & music, sound and energy healing, and guided meditations.

”A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one’s neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”
― Leo Tolstoy
