What Is EAL?
EAL is a non-riding programme where each session has a pre-agreed objective. Equines are used to engage, educate and equip participants who are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.
Horses make great teachers. They are non-judgemental and provide immediate and honest feedback. The immediacy of the horse’s response encourages the participant to reflect on why the horse is reacting as it is and, in doing so, identify and reflect upon their own behaviour and emotions.

One parent’s response to her daughter’s EAL experience at Glenview:
'Just a wee note to let you know what an impact the time at Glenview has had on our daughter. This last year has been really difficult for her but you and Glenview have been a lifeline for us, the one constant thing in her life that she has enjoyed and wanted to come to. You have been so patient with her, with her problems and sensory needs and going out of your way to make sure these are met to give her the best positive and enjoyable experience each time. Thank you.’ Fran
