HAE Development Days

Eahae Logo

The EAHAE Development Days have been created for anyone that has trained and is working in the field of Horse Assisted Education. The day has been designed for you to meet like-minded individuals, learn from others, revisit your original training and develop your Horse Assisted Education practice. They are for facilitators from all walks of life and all different training models. The intended outcomes are:

  • New connections
  • Enhanced practical skills
  • The opportunity to step outside your comfort zone
  • Support through shared learning
  • New exercises and content you can share with your clients

All of these are intended so you can go home, develop your business and increase your impact.

Next event - 4th November 2017

Hosted by Equinethos, Dovecote Stables, nr Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

In the first of what we hope will be an ongoing event moving forwards, HorseSense UK has teamed up with some of our favourite facilitators to bring you a one day networking session on behalf of the Equine Assisted and Facilitator Practitioners Network (EAFPN). 

The morning will be a networking session with Equinethos' pony with attitude - CJ, and the afternoon will be an 'envisioning' session where we will explore and experiment with the help of the three horses below. We will work in groups so you will have the opportunity to participate, facilitate and observe. 

EAFPN Trainers

This event is open to all those that are currently practicing, in training or have an supporting interest in equine assisted work (such as venue provision).

We welcome all training modalities - HorseBoy, LEAP, EAGALA, EAHAE, EAQ, EPONA, PATH, IFEAL and wish this to be a respectful and collaborative interaction between a wide range of practitioners delivering Equine Assisted Learning, Coaching and therapy. 

We request that all that attend are competent horse handlers and respect the ethos of the EAFPN - a community based on networking/collaborating/sharing ideas.

Please bring a packed lunch. 

Join others that are passionate about this work to meet, network and exchange ideas. Spaces are limited to 60 and are on a first come first served basis so accomodate an afternoon practical "envisioning" session with the three equine

"This was a really valuable CPD and business coaching experience." 

"Today was hugely beneficial and uncannily timely. It has given me a clear vision of my next steps, thank you."  Windsor, 2015

"Well balanced agenda between theory and practical activities. All inclusive feel from facilitators of the day. Working together on areas we wanted to focus on in a free format (final practical) was very valuable." Windsor 2016

The European Association for Horse Assisted Education (EAHAE) is a platform for information, communication, education, certification, research and publication of every kind of Horse Assisted Education.

The vision is to establish and develop Horse Assisted Education as a general form of personal and professional development in (not only European) enterprises, organisations, institutions, societies, and for personal purposes.

EAHAE is a support platform, on which every member can develop her/his own horse assisted education business. 

For EAHAE community it is essential we hold and adhere to certain values. Above all is trust. Further we encourage caring, collaborative business and not competitive business. 

It is core the EAHAE values that we collaborate on an equal level. 

Regarding our horses, we consider them as trainers not as tools.

These core values are a substantial and essential facet of the HorseDream Train the Trainer Seminar, which qualifies for EAHAE membership.
