Equine Assisted Learning Program

This program was designed and marketed by Tamara Mackinnon. She has authored a number of EAL text books and exercises that are now used at a number of EAL educational facilities. Our Equine Assisted Learning Program is the only Internationally Recognized Program of its kind! Based on the BuildingBlock Methodâ„¢ of learning built by Tamara Mackinnon, we have been able to reach youth throughout Canada! Our mentors at Equine Connection, Kari Fulmek and Carolyn Charles, have equipped our Facilitators to effectively deliver each days objective efficiently and safely, while having a fun and an interactive atmosphere.

Specifically designed to build up youth ages 8 to 18 years and adults from 18-108 years of age, we use the horse to teach necessary life skills.
