Can you lead a horse to water so to speak? Do you know horses? You might have been on a trail ride (we all have right?), but are you comfortable and actually know how to interact, communicate, and handle a horse? Ever hugged a horse? Cuddled with a horse? Can you brush a horse, clean their feet, put on a halter, or be on the ground with them in their space? You will be able to if you go through EAGLE!
Eagle (Equine Assisted Growth & Leadership Experience) is an unique Horse Program, that will use our resident horses, Fix and Mango, in an up-close and personal manner to help you understand things like stress, communication skills, leadership skills, and coping with pressure all while you are learning about a horse! In this horse experience, you will work with a horse in a hands-on manner, up close and personal, something you have never experienced if your only interaction has been trail riding or a few lessons here and there. This is a fun and enjoyable experience that is completely safe conducted at our state of the art facility on the cliff edge of the Pacific Ocean. Your instructor for this experience is Dr. Jennifer Walker, designer of our own EAGLE program.
The goal of EAGLE is to be enjoyable experience as you will be close and personal with a horse while learning horsemanship skills. In doing so, one develops needed skills and attributes, such as communication, accountability, responsibility, self-confidence, problem-solving skills, and self-control that possibly translates to your everyday life. The fun part is that your teacher will be a 1000+ LB horse that will helps you see yourself as a reflective mirror as you conduct ground interactive activities with a horse up-close and personal. This is not a trail ride or a riding lesson, as ANYBODY can sit on a horse and be a passenger (got any quarters?), but an interpersonal experience connecting your soul with a horse to learn about the horse and yourself. Most activities are conducted on the ground and not on the horse. Each Equine Assisted Growth & Leadership Experience is unique to the needs of the individual, couple, or group. What you do with the horse is dependent on your needs, abilities, and connection with the horse.

2hr - $150 for individual or $200 for a couple
