Equine Facilitated Learning

EQUINE FACILITATED LEARNING (EFL) WORKSHOPS designed & delivered by Spirit in Stirrups Limited ( )

EFL is a unique and highly effective tool in personal as well as leadership development. These bespoke learning opportunities will encourage participants to explore and experiment with Emotional Intelligence (EI), i.e. Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, Empathy, Motivation & Social Skills. It supports building (or rebuilding) confidence and provides plenty of space for reflection. Participants will have an opportunity to explore different approaches to problem solving in a non-judgemental environment.

Unlike people, horses do not pre-judge us by our looks, clothes, social status or a position we may hold, but interact with and respond to us based on what’s happening ‘in the moment’ – right now, right here. Horses perfectly mirror our attitude and energy levels; are able to accurately read our body language and discern our intentions towards them, making them ideal partners and co-facilitators to provide the participant with instant, honest feedback on their performance.

Participation does not require any previous equestrian experience and does not involve any riding. All interactions with the horses are on the ground only and are facilitated by Bea Simpson, a highly experienced British Horse Society Senior Accredited Professional Coach and Leadership Development Coach. 

Sessions are available on a one-to-one or group basis, depending on your individual requirements and intended learning outcomes. For all enquiries and bookings please contact Bea directly on 07951 156918 or visit .
