Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) is an unmounted, hands-on program. EFL utilizes a variety of activities to teach abstract concepts including personal boundaries, self-awareness and cooperation. EFL provides avenues for students to learn appropriate social behavior, empathy, and impulse control. Students will learn to interact with horses as well as understand the horse's behavior and be able to transfer that information to their everyday lives.
Therapeutic Horsemanship combines mounted and unmounted activities intended for therapeutic outcomes, including improved balance and coordination, increased self-confidence, and a greater feeling of freedom and independence.
