The one-year apprenticeship program is tailored to those who want to obtain a rigorous and well-rounded education in the art of equine-facilitated learning. At the end of the program, students will have developed an in-depth understanding of EFL theory and practice based on a variety of practice models and the latest research available in the field. Students will also develop an in-depth understanding of the role of energy in horse-human interactions, and of the healing potential in the relationship between man and Mother Earth.
The apprenticeship program will include lessons in natural horsemanship, through which participants: (a) explore the dynamics of the horse's prey psyche; (b) develop the ability to observe and identify how horses make decisions; (c) have in-depth experiences in non-verbal communication; and (d) commit to becoming a student of the horse.
