The EQUAL Family Programme utilises Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) to develop social-emotional skills in persons with special needs and their caregivers, through working with our majestic and gentle therapy horses.
@ JALAN MASHHOR
Spend your time with the horses as a family at our site at Jalan Mashhor, surrounded by lush greenery.
Through the sessions, you can look forward to improving family bonds, and strengthen social-emotional skills through the fun and enriching activities with the horses, such as showering a horse and horse-riding.
Sign up as a family (up to 6 members) now!
WEDNESDAYS WITH HORSES
@ NEE SOON EAST
Read up on our past offsite to Nee Soon where we spent each Wednesday mornings meaningfully with our participants in the lovely neighbourhood with our horses!
In the comfort of their neighbourhood, our participants had fun and meaningful activities with the horses such as leading the horse, grooming the horse, learning more about the horse’s behaviours, and developing skills such as empathy and communication.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
— Apple Teng,
Mother of a 7-year-old son with autism
“Through the 5 sessions, Alfie learnt how to groom, take care of and ride a horse. Horses are very sensitive animals and Alfie learnt how to observe horse behaviour to know whether the horse is angry or delighted. Alfie also learnt to be disciplined and follow rules and regulations during the sessions at EQUAL. It’s an overall good experience.”
