Transitions is Equine Assisted Growth and Learning (EAGAL) is a collaborative process involving a qualified counsellor and an equine specialist working with clients and horses to assist growth and learning goals. This short-term intervention has demonstrated hard outcomes and benefits for a range of clients.
The approach is widely documented in North America and has expanded to Europe in the last five years. Projects are well established in England and Scotland; MACS is breaking new ground as the first organisation to introduce this horse based intervention to Northern Ireland.
Five young people participated in the pilot and the amazing outcomes of their experience are documented in this report.Transitions Evaluation Report 2012
