EAL is beneficial for everybody due to horses' judgement-free and transparent responses. Children and adolescents that are struggling socially or emotionally or that just need a confidence boost can benefit from experiential learning with horses.
Children and adolescents with Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD) and those on the autistic spectrum can also benefit hugely from EAL. Anxiety management and increased confidence and speech are just some of the benefits reported in research on the topic. Student leaders such as prefects and head boys/girls can benefit from leadership skills development and can learn more about how to work together as a cohesive team.
