Where Horses bring learning to life! 

The Future Leaders Program is an Equine Assisted Learning Program (EAL) focused on developing today’s youth into tomorrow’s leaders through fun and engaging horseplay! 

Using our horses as guides, students will focus on key learning objectives and are tasked to work with the horses and their teammates to achieve their goals which we then link to their own experiences at school, home and in the community. 

Non-verbal communication, assertiveness, creative thinking, leadership, responsibility, confidence, and teamwork are several examples of the skills each participant will develop to help them recognize and demonstrate exemplary leadership qualities.

We offer various formats to suit your schedule and budget including single one-hour sessions, day workshops and weekly sessions to help young people build confidence and develop effective communication, leadership and teambuilding skills.

Our programs can be customized to align with your current areas of study, bringing an experiential learning element to your curriculum to enhance learning.

Ideal for youth programs through schools, churchs, sports, and all equestrians.

Ages 8 years and up


Single EAL Session per person $85.00 + GST = $89.25

Full Day (two sessions) $145.00 + GST = $152.25

Multiple Day $125.00 + GST = $131.25  (minimum 10 participants)

Youth Group Discounts available for over 10 participants.

Each Program Includes:

  • Professionally facilitated equine assisted learning sessions focused on skills development using our proven Building Block approach
  • Certified EAL facilitators and experienced horsemen
