EAL Workshops for Military Veterans.
Comrades in Arms, meaning those that have worked for the same cause or purpose and shared the same difficulties and dangers are monthly equine assisted and learning (EAL), experiential workshops offered to military veterans of any age, who have served in any branch of the military. These 1.5 hour workshops are offered on designated Saturday’s throughout the year and offered for Free thanks to donors of our veterans scholarship program. Registration is required as seating is limited.
Join other military veterans for this hands on workshop and come meet our healing horses. Facilitated by our licensed and credentialed treatment team, Janna Le Tenhuisen, LISW-S and Michele Bolinger, Equine Specialist; learn how to care for them through grooming and mindfulness techniques. Gain knowledge on how they communicate and survive in the wild and within their herd. Experience powerful lessons through experiential learning activities. The simple act of being in the presence of a horse can calm our minds, relieve stress and anxiety, help lower blood pressure, reduce the effects of trauma, reduce pain and more.
Participants will gain healthy connections, strength and confidence, while reducing the effects of trauma and related disorders.
