Providing The Best in Equine Experiential Education


E3A is proud to announce the 1st International E3A Conference:

Inspired Leadership Through Equine Partners 

September 14-16, 2017 

The Calvin Center (

13550 Woolsey Road, Hampton, Georgia 30228  

Since the formation of the Equine Experiential Education Association (E3A) in 2006, E3A has grown into a leading organization for education and certification in Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL). The foundation of E3A is a facilitation model that supports a non-therapeutic approach to coaching, corporate training, and personal development and well being. E3A is proud to offer its first conference to be held September 14-16, 2017, bringing together E3A members, as well as others in the EAL community, for an in-depth, three-day study of EAL using the E3A approach. 

The theme of the conference is Inspired Leadership Through Equine Partners, focusing on the manner in which we work with horses to teach leadership skills in corporate and educational environments, as well as in our personal lives. The conference will be held at The Calvin Center in Hampton, Georgia, USA, offering a venue in a serene setting with an excellent equestrian center.

The E3A conference organization committee is seeking presenters who would like to participate in the formation of the 3-day conference program. Topics for presentation include, but are not limited to:

  • Running an E3A business
  • Design of Meaningful Horse Activities for Inspiring Leadership
  • Experience with Using the E3A Approach (What Works, What Doesn’t)
  • The Role of the Horse in EAL activities
  • Understanding Client Needs
  • Marketing Your EAL Business
  • Bringing Value to Your EAL Business
  • How to Make Lasting Change Happen from an EAL Workshop

All presentations must specifically focus on the E3A approach to EAL.
