We offer Equine-assisted learning (EAL) programs for Veterans, first responders and active duty military free of charge. Located in Aberdeen North Carolina, close to Fort Bragg.  EAL has been shown to help with PTSD, TBI's, and other related injuries that our military personnel may suffer.  During EAL our participants develop clear communication skills and learn how to have a healthy work/play relationship with one of our horses. The ability to have a good relationship with a horse opens gateways to healthy relationships within the human world. EAL promotes the development of life skills applicable to educational, professional, or personal goals through equine-assisted activities. An EAL session consists of a participant, a horse, and a professional equine specialist working together in an outdoor setting.

 

We start with a 2-hour assessment session in which we introduce you to EAL and you can decide if it is something you wish to pursue.
