With EAL, the horse acts as a partner in the participants learning, a fellow facilitator who responds to the feelings and actions of the participant. This is because horses have a highly evolved survival mechanism that can recognise threatening or safe intent from up to a kilometre away. Hence, their survival as a species.
Because of this unique attribute, horses act as a mirror for the person’s internal state and will react accordingly. This will usually be a non-verbal cue that’s information for the participant. They need to act whilst finding a way internally to overcome or capitalise on emotional energy, thereby finding their own solution to their inner emotional state.
