Equine Assisted Learning
Equine (Donkey) Assisted Learning is an experiential approach using donkeys as co-facilitators. Participants actively engage in and reflect upon hands-on activities with donkeys. EAL provides opportunities to learn a variety of life skills and to develop self-confidence and self-esteem. Social and emotional skills are developed through participation in purposeful activities. The sessions are conducted by an ESMHL.
