EFL can be a powerful experience for any person looking to learn and grow. Sessions take place working with horses on the ground with the help of a facilitator. The magic of EFL begins with the nature of the horse being a prey animal. Because of this equines must stay vigilant in the present moment for their survival. This instinctual way of being in the horse nudges participants to align with the here and now. During sessions the horses help to illustrate issues or lessons relevant in the participant's lives. As people get to experience and process what they are going through in real time with the horses, participants can begin to draw meaning from their interactions and observations with the horses. After sessions individuals are able to apply these valuable and meaningful lessons into their lives.
