Equine
Facilitated
Learning

Contemporary clinical research shows that close proximity to horses changes human brain wave patterns suggesting that humans can be transformed in a very positive way when in the presence of horses. It has also been revealed in studies conducted by HeartMath that horses have extremely strong heart rhythms which have the capacity to affect our own heart rhythms, similar to a magnetic force, which help relax and calm us when in their presence.
This explains how appropriate interaction with horses can therefore be extremely therapeutic to adults and children alike.

Horses have a finely tuned ability to pick up on and see who we really are, our capacities and our struggles and help us develop, grow and improve through working with them.     

Equine Facilitated Learning is an interaction between horses and people designed to promote experiential learning for all the participants. EFL promotes strategies to attain healthier relationships that in turn can improve wider group and family dynamics. EFL sessions bring together horses and people in a safe, supervised space designed to elicit positive and empowering interaction. 

The majority of sessions involve interacting with the horse from the ground and although riding is a possibility, most people will experience EFL and its many benefits in this way. EFL is fun, interactive and informative! Great for all ages and abilities, everyone will go home feeling happier and more relaxed for a long time after the session ends. There is no age barrier for Equine Facilitated Learning and we have horses to suit a large range of clients. Currently our oldest client here at Consciously You is 91 and our youngest 9!
