Well its not really magic - unless you believe in the magic of nature and her flora and fauna.

Equine Facilitated Learning uses horses, activities and the outdoors to providean alternative to

office and classroom based therapy. EFL is experiential. Research shows this to be the way most

people learn, and therefore provides most benefit to physical and emotional growth.

Taking part in activities and learning from experience promotes coping behaviours rather than defensive

behaviours. EFL helps people to learn about themselves and others.

I work in as part of a team with Laura Brennan (BHS Professional Accredited Coach) and a herd of

horses. I am the mental health speacialist and Laura is the equine specialist. We are both

Qualified Professionals in Equine Facilitated Learning and Equine Assisted Therapy. Laura has worked

in the equine industry for the past 17 years and for 12 years has run the Laura Brennan Equestrian

Centre (approved and registered by the British Horse Society, and consistently graded highly

comended for customer care, horse welfare, stabling and working procedures), where with 21 horses

she delivers teaching and coaching to develop equestrian course members aged from two to adult.
