HAE Development Days

Eahae Logo

The HAE 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, develop your skills as a practitioner and thus develop your Horse Assisted Education practice. They are for facilitators from all types of learning with horses (coaching, therapy, personal development and education) 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.

The Role of Facilitation - 11th May 2019, nr Windsor, UK

Facilitation is a skill that we use to support our clients and learners in order that they can get the most from the session and their interaction with the horses.

DSC_0102 (3)On this HAE Development Day for Horse Assisted Educators, Therapists and Coaches, we will explore the role of the Facilitator in Equine Guided Learning.

Led by Tess Cope (The Transformation Agency) and Sarah Vivian (Horserenity), we will look at how we get ourselves ready to facilitate and examine the role of the facilitator in terms of the impact that our unconscious biases, preferred style and communication have on the client and the horse.

Each of the different Equine Guided Learning models works with facilitation in different ways, so the day will be an opportunity to examine your own style and learn from others about theirs.

The day includes classroom sessions, interspersed with practical horse-time and real examples that will bring this topic to life in a memorable and experiential way - ensuring it provides some stretch and growth for us all. We trust  that you will leave feeling able to facilitate effectively, sensitively and with more confidence.

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

Please bring a packed lunch. 

Join others that are passionate about this work to meet, network and exchange ideas. Spaces are limited to 20 participants to allow sufficient time with the horses, and are on a first come first served basis.

"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.
