Equine Assisted Learning is a unique learning experience that uses horses as active participants.
Inspired Equine Assisted Learning is a fully insured Community Interest Company that offers everyone the opportunity to experience how horses can enhance their wellbeing. To those with particular needs, EAL offers an effective alternative to traditional forms of counselling or psychotherapy.While there are physical benefits to EAL, its focus is on the emotional and positive mental influence that spending time with horses has on your life. EAL is experiential, meaning you learn by "doing".Why the community needs us
Including horses as part of the learning experience is an especially powerful method to develop confidence and trust, learn how to understand and control emotions, enrich relationships and interactions with family, friends and colleagues, discover effective techniques to manage stress and anxiety, enhance communication and problem-solving skills and develop a sense of wellbeing.Our impact on the community
Our EAL sessions help local people from all kinds of backgrounds, including adults and children with mental health problems, people suffering with anxiety or depression, children with physical disabilities, teenagers in residential care, people on the autistic spectrum, adults and children with life limiting illnesses and their families, young people with behavioural challenges, armed Forces Veterans and their families, carers - young and adult and domestic abuse survivors.
Most of our volunteer roles are the necessary behind the scenes jobs such as mucking out stables, field maintenance, painting stables, gardening or even fundraising if you have experience in this area.
