The Equine Facilitated Learning Program at Gleneayre is a non-riding curriculum-based program that engages groups of people by offering them the opportunity to fully participate in experiential learning. This curriculum utilizes horses to teach character education alongside history, math, life sciences and writing to help students reach their full potential. EFL is well suited for students who do not thrive in the traditional classroom setting, including those with ADHD, learning disabilities, Autism and behavioral challenges.
The Gleneayre Equestrian Program is a 501(c)3 organization in Lumberton, NJ whose mission includes utilizing horses to benefit the lives of youths with challenges. Since 1998, they have been providing programs and have served many children through their Work-to-Ride, Equine Facilitated Learning and Equine Assisted Support Services programs.
As confirmed by Strides to Success, our staff has completed the training offered in Indiana for this Equine Facilitated Learning model. Additionally, the founders of the Strides to Success organization have been to our facility to provide further training for our staff utilizing our horses.
We have extensive experience with this curriculum and have provided this program to many at-risk youths over the course of the past eight years. This curriculum focuses on developing essential character skills, including respect, honesty and integrity. Parents and teachers have noted the impact on the lives of the children who have participated in this program, including improvements in anger management, cooperation, respect for others and decision making.
The Gleneayre Equestrian Program provides the Equine Facilitated Learning program at our facility in Burlington County. This facility is unique because it was modeled after the facility at Strides to Success and built specifically to work with integrating Equine Facilitated Learning programs.
