Everything you need to know

What is EFL? Contemporary clinical research shows that close proximity to horses change the human brain wave patterns suggesting that humans can be transformed in a very positive way when in presence of horses. Appropriate interaction with horses can therefore prove therapeutic to adults and children alike. Equine Facilitated learning is an interaction between horses and people designed to promote experiential learning for all 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.

Our program includes a targeted program for the individual with a written review report if required by your plan. We combine EFL with all the skills of becoming a competent horse rider. Some of the activities we undertake are Liberty work, painting, grooming, taking care of your horse (ground work), bareback riding, saddle work and much more.

$154 for 1 hour EFL session – NDIS Supported Program
