THE EXPERIENCE             

LeadChange, and it’s charity partner HorseHeard bring this three-day Equine Facilitated Learning Foundation programme which equips participants with the knowledge and practical skills that underpin the delivery of equine-facilitated learning programmes.

The course is highly experiential – blending classroom learning and hands-on sessions with horses. It is suitable for those that want to explore the foundations of equine facilitated learning or further their practise as a coach. It provides a grounding both for those working in the charitable and business sectors, with both children and adults.
