EAGALA Model Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) for Military Service Members – Group Therapy

Equine Assisted Learning, or EAL, is a hands on experiential process that allows natural interaction between humans and horses in a therapeutic group setting. There are endless ways to apply this approach to personal, professional and human development.

EAL helps individuals better understand themselves and others, through participating in activities with the horses and then discussing feelings, behaviors and patterns. The debriefing process seeks to bridge the horse activities from the arena back to "real life", inviting people to reflect, analyze and apply new insights. EAL can help you develop problem solving skills, improve your leadership abilities, communicate more effectively, build healthier relationships and enhance self-worth. It is ideal for adults seeking to develop the tools and strategies needed to make good choices.
