Definitely, riding can be an amazing experience! Equine Assisted Learning is on the ground because we want the horses to have opportunity to give feedback through body language. If a participant is on the horses’ back, it’s not as easy for them to see that feedback. Riding takes a lot of skill and technique for it to be a safe and fun experience for horse and rider. We do not want our programs to be consumed with riding and skill instruction, because it’s meant to be a facilitated learning and self-discovery experience.
