What’s the difference between equine experiential learning, equine assisted learning, and equine guided learning?
Mostly, these terms are interchangeable. Individual providers may prefer a particular term to describe their work, but there’s no clear-cut distinction or definition based on methodologies or type of practice. In other words, it’s not like one term is used consistently in referring to corporate coaching, another used for therapy or academic research.
Do all providers offer the same range of services?
No, areas of expertise and services vary.
How can individuals and businesses find an appropriate provider?
Our Winning With Horse Power, Provider Directory groups Provider Associates by service and by location. We provide a profile for each Provider Associate with a direct link to their website for accessing even more information.
How much do most people know about equine experiential learning?
My informal survey of about 100 people over a 30-day period showed almost zero recognition of the field. A few thought it was therapeutic riding and others assumed it was about The Horse Whisperer. There wasn’t an answer that was near or on target. For Winning With Horse Power, that is where the challenge lies: Advancing awareness of the equine experiential field and supporting providers in all areas of expertise and all methodologies.
How does Winning With Horse Power serve HR pros?
In my former role in corporate training, I tried researching the equine experiential field as a potential coaching/training resource. It was a fruitless and frustrating effort. At the time, there was no comprehensive database that could assist HR or training professionals to quickly and efficiently find what they needed. There was no neutral support system to help develop a proposal and justify the budget. One of my major goals for Winning With Horse Power is to fill that need.
