Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) Practitioners

Our Certified EAL Practitioners are teachers, disability support workers, youth workers, horse riding instructors, coaches, organisational consultants, and, people interested in helping people learn new skills, with the horses as engaging partners in the process.

EAL practitioners have also successfully completed over 120 hours training, supervision and assessment in EAL, and now offer it as specialist modality to support social-emotional learning, personal development and professional development such as leadership and team effectiveness skills.

EAL is not therapy. EAL is an innovative form of experiential learning – where clients develop new insight and learn new skills via relational experiences with horses.

EPI Model EAL Practitioner
Wilkydoo Equine Connection

My small equine herd and I are based in the beautiful Flinders Ranges, near Wilmington SA. Wilmington is a farming community close to Port Augusta, and approximately an hour from Port Pirie and Jamestown.

I offer sessions and programs for individuals or pairs in personal and professional development. These support you to build awareness and develop your personal skills for social and emotional well-being and develop team participation and leadership skills.

My background, which supports my EAL Practitioner certification, includes Diploma in Business-Human Resources, Cert IV in Training Assessment & Education, and natural horsemanship. I have a lifetime of working with people in varying fields and locations around Australia, including, health, sales, recruitment and job service provider sectors. I have also spent much of my life working (and playing) with horses, dogs and livestock.
