Strides To Success is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing unique learning opportunities that strengthen and develop lives. The Strides methodology includes partnering students with horses to promote healthy life skills and develop strength based assets that stimulate positive behavioral changes. This process is called Equine Assisted Learning or EAL.
Each EAL session is designed to teach individuals to set goals, develop a plan, implement that plan, achieve the goal, and analyze the outcomes. The interactive lessons with the horses allow the students to self-discover and improve their processes to achieve the best possible outcome.
Why Horses? Horses require work, whether in caring for them or working in partnership with them. In an era when immediate gratification and the easy way are the norm, horses require people to be engaged in physical and mental work to be successful, a valuable characteristic in all aspects of life.
