EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING & TRAINING (EAL&T)

We offer EAL & T sessions tailored to your needs for individuals or small groups (up to 6 individuals) using games, challenges and discussion in a friendly environment. 

Sessions have been developed from the works of Susan Jung M.ED.EDS., Dixie Cowles M.ED. Charisse Rudolph and Ruth M. Buczynski, PhD among others. The horses are experienced in working in these sessions and provide an invaluable connection without confrontation or judgement.

Ensuring best outcomes

Sheridan will work with your psychologist or counsellor to develop the most appropriate activities for therapy sessions to ensure the best outcome. During therapy sessions your support psychologist or counsellor must be in attendance (their costs are not included in Sherony Park’s fee).

Sessions

Private sessions are available as one offs or as a program. Families, couples or friends experiencing issues may also book for a program or session.

Schools are welcome to bring groups of students with challenges such as truancy, self harm, communication issues and lack of self confidence.
