EAL and EAP is an emerging experiential approach in which horses are used as a tool for emotional growth and learning, and trauma resolution.
The fields of social exclusion, anger management, team work, self esteem building, bereavement, family work, abuse, mental health and trauma are all areas where EAL/EAP have proved effective. Well known exponents include the Priory Clinic.
Turn About Pegasus has adopted the international Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA) theoretical framework, using a qualified registered mental health specialist and an experienced equine specialist.
Funding has been received from the National Lottery's Awards for All scheme, the Community Foundation and Northumberland County Council's Community Grants Fund.
