Equine Assisted Social Education (EASE)


Equine Assisted Social Education

You are welcome to read more about equine partners teaching lessons at school from my peer-reviewed article:

Harnessing horses in social pedagogy: Equine-assisted social education in a school context

Equine Partners in Education offers equestrian activities and learning, especially for children and adolescents. Horse activities are utilized to find inner powers, to prevent exclusion, and to aid rehabilitation. The horse acts as a co-educator in this process. Horses set limits (telling how close you can come, how to touch and where etc.) impacting behavior and interaction.

Horses change lives.
They give our young people confidence and self-esteem.
They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls.
They give us hope!
– Toni Robinson -

As I have studied this cross-cultural, interspecies and multidiscipline intervention, I have noticed the impact that it has on relationships in various groups. School kids with their school adults have an opportunity to view each other with ”new glasses”, as stable environment offers chores for everyone to reach with success.

Our activities also develop natural horsemanship skills and promote communication skills with horses bridging human interaction.

It would be a pleasure to tell you more about this program!
