Welcome to Wiltshire Equine Assisted Learning
Equine Assisted Learning is a unique way of offering education which puts the learner at the heart of all we do. We offer interactions with ponies and a range of animals as well as outdoor activities and through this we are able to think about what has happened in these moments. We can then learn about ourselves, develop our communication skills and develop our self confidence and self awareness. We offer a quiet and relaxed environment with staff who have the skills and expertise to ensure time spent with us is enjoyable and educational.
Wiltshire Equine Assisted Learning is a not for profit organisation which offers children, young people and adults the opportunity to engage in learning through participating in activities with our carefully chosen horses and other animals. We are based between Trowbridge and Melksham in the heart of West Wiltshire. We offer a warm and friendly welcome, highly qualified facilitators and a beautiful countryside environment to come and experience this unique way to learn.
We work with people from the age of 6 upwards and any ability. We also have facilities to cater for people with physical disabilities or wheelchair users. We want people to enjoy an experience with our horses whilst learning about themselves at the same time. You don’t need to know anything about horses to take part and there is no riding involved so take time to look through our website and find out how our team of very special horses and facilitators can help.
We are accredited by Wiltshire Council to offer alternative education provision an can offer bespoke programmes and vocational qualifications including functional skills Maths and English, Animal Care, Horticulture and Employability from Entry Level upwards to Level 3 in some courses. All our work is 1:1 and we can work with children, young people and adults of all abilities and needs.
