2020 is closing out…Whew! We are so eager to get on with the New Year 2021!

Our Master Trainers have created a whole new format for offering our training, with enhanced curriculum and extended arena training. Investment for our Certification Training offers will increase in 2021 along with the added value.

 If you are concerned with having the time to do the training or the dates of the trainings – we’ve got you covered. 

 The Level 1 trainings (Intro and Foundations classes) are online in the first segment, so no travel is required

WHAT MAKES OUR CERTIFICATION DIFFERENT?

  • E3A focuses on the effective facilitation of Equine Assisted Learning development programs that cater to corporate, coaching, leadership, team building, Personal Development and Wellness, and educational clientele, as distinguished from therapeutic models (EAP, EAAT etc.) (Click for PDF)
  • Our arena certification trainings have a maximum of 12 – 14 participants to provide plenty of facilitation practice time and individualized coaching and feedback specific to your program focus
  • Our graduate level curriculum and professional workshop templates give you the confidence and support to facilitate your own EAL programming
  • We are a network of open-minded practitioners and professionals who have a passion for the field of Equine Assisted Learning and for the physical safety and emotional well-being of both horses and humans
  • E3A does not align itself with any specific horsemanship philosophy or methodology within our training program.
