Equine Assisted Learning

Equine-assisted learning (EAL) is a unique experiential learner centred program that promotes the development of healthy life skills for educational, professional and personal development through equine-assisted activities. The horse is the teacher!

The facilitator led exercises incorporates the horse into a group or team for hands-on interactive challenges. No saddle required.

EAL exercises can also be tailored to help participants overcome specific challenges. In an EAL setting, the experiential approach integrates horse-human interaction that is guided by a planned and objective driven learning experience to meet the identified goals of the participant(s). Learning with horses provides an opportunity to teach critical life skills such as

  • trust
  • respect
  • honesty
  • communication.

 

Trail Rides 

Over 200 acres of the most serene trails with small streams, babbling brooks and miniature water falls. Rides follow well groomed and mapped trails across open fields and managed woodlands, rich in animal and plant life. Our rides are tailored to the age, experience and comfort level of each rider, with a variety of different horses and trails. We will pick the horse for your camper based on ability. All rides go at the speed of the least comfortable rider to keep it safe and enjoyable for everyone.

 

Archery

This ancient sport combines martial arts with archery and has gained a great deal of attention. Although this may sound terrifying, lessons begin gently and stress free with feet on the ground. You will enjoy a variety of fun shooting drills, which are guaranteed to build confidence.

The sport has been highlighted in the news and even in a documentary with the president of Seawinds Horse Archers club president, Lance Bishop of Canning Nova Scotia. The sport is gaining momentum!

Swimming

Be sure to bring your bathing suit and a towel! Swimmers will have the opportunity on some days to use the swimming pool to participate in games and water sports.

First Aid Training

The ranch owner is a certified Red Cross first aid instructor and feels strongly that children should be prepared for emergencies. Especially when participating in high risk activities and sports. During extended camps, children will learn and rehearse first aid skills.
