Equine Assisted Learning Programs in Calgary


Through Horses' Eyes offers a 6 to 12 week program for families that are facing difficult challenges within their family unit.  This would pertain to families dealing with the loss of a loved one, divorce, overcoming or coping with illness or even families with a breakdown in communication.


What To Expect


Our Building Block ProgramTM will take place in our classroom and well as in our arena.  Families will be involved in vocational, cognitive and experiential learning. Every week there is a new challenge, different obstacle courses and another objective.


Become engaged in a creative learning process where the horse will be their teacher.  As a team they will work through a series of obstacles designed to challenge their skills as a unit and encourage them to develop new skills individually as well as within their family.  In gaining a new skill set, family members will now have the tools to cope with difficult life changes and family challenges.


Benefits of the Family Building Block ProgramTM:


  • Positive and Effective Communication

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Active Listening

  • Emotional Expression

  • Accountability

  • Trust/Respect/Personal Integrity

  • Self Confidence and Self Esteem

  • Coping/Overcoming Challenges

  • Defining Boundaries

  • Improving Family Dynamics



These are a few examples of how our horses can teach you about yourself, about your family and the relationships within your family.  To horses, family and herd dynamics means survival so it HAS to work.  In partnering with our horses, they will allow you to see what is working and what changes need to be made within your dynamics to allow you to overcome whatever obstacle you are faced with.
