Equine Facilitated Learning

Family Focus is excited to have EFL as an alternative to traditional models of treatment and learning for participants interested in self-exploration and personal growth.

EFL is the practice of using horses for emotional growth. Participants use feelings, behaviors, and patterns to better understand the horse and themselves. The field of using horses for learning has been proven to be very effective in building confidence, improving communication and developing personal insights. EFL works because horses mirror the emotions and behaviors of the participants that surround them.

EFL builds skills in the following areas:

Problem Solving
Impulse Control
Anxiety Management
Work Ethic
Personal Responsibility
Corporate Teamwork
Emotional Growth
Relationship Building
