Reviews for Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association, Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an awesome organization that has the psychological needs of all people, and people groups, at the heart of its cause. The unique combination of quality mental health professionals, equine specialists and horses provides each client with opportunities to discover their own strengths, perceived weeknesses and improvement pathways. EAGALA just adopted a significant, yet achievable, vision for this organization: “Every person around the world has access to EAGALA Model services.” I support EAGALA and give to this cause because of the real changes that are being made in people's lives all around the world. In addition, I am confident that this organization is being managed in a way that will advance the organization's cause for perpetual positive impact.

Exemplary organization. Exemplary mental health, human service, professional and organizational trainings as well. In the field of equine mental health -i.e.- the use of horses in mental health psychotherapy, the EAGALA model is without question or doubt the highest rating in levels of care, purpose, professional results and findings, accuracy, professional integrity and soundness in practice both professionally and spiritually. I include the spiritual aspect in this last evaluation, as there are too many practices in the mental health field, including equine work that is in truth unsound, inaccurate and/ or unhealthy. The trainings at each Level and the practice of this EAGALA modality is effective, amazingly accurate and very enjoyable! To boot, one, whether the professional or the client, enjoys fresh air too! EAGALA has both domestic and international affiliations. Truly extraordinary and sound work!
