It is obvious by using EAL **** is learning to experience and manage the horses emotional state. By helping the horse to regulate and relax, he is learning strategies to help himself to regulate and relax.

I feel it has built his trust up a lot, calmed his behaviour, and developed his empathy. I have seen a massive change in ****.

Bouncing around scares him! If I am aggressive, he will be aggressive back, if I am calm, he can be calm back.

I love going to see them, [the horses] they make me feel happy and calm.

It has been very beneficial for ***** to attend the ‘Building Connections’ programme. He has lost many of his worries and is more confident in himself. ***** has returned from each session in a relaxed and calm manner and is keen to explain what he has done and is motivated to get on with his lessons in school. He is aware of how the horses feel and how it is important to be calm and patient with them.

It’s made me feel much calmer… to step back & listen to others.

Thank you all for a really lovely relaxed day. It’s great to have a place/group where you can express yourself openly and without judgement.

We came up from Hampshire, your demo made it all worthwhile. We rushed back and tried it. Your explanation was clear which did in fact make the practical simple! Thank you.
