E3A – Equine Experiential Education





Course Description: A primer on experiential education and the facilitation process that provides context and framework for equine-based action learning. The concepts presented are primarily based on the book, Open to Outcome (O2O – reading is a course prerequisite). This course will provide a basic understanding of experiential facilitation for Equine Experiential Education (E3) programming, or other equine-based work with corporations, youth or individuals. This is the initial introduction into experiential facilitation and the training courses that follow reinforce and build upon this basic knowledge of facilitation.
Please Note: This Teleclass is open to members only.

Member Testimonials

The success of any organization is reflected in the real-life results of its members.

On Community

“Finding E3A was just the thing I knew in my heart I was looking for. Their program resonates with my beliefs and I found their openness to finding what works best for each person and/or business refreshing while always putting the horses well being first.”
Leticia Weikel-Peterson

Owner, Oregon Horsemanship & Teamwork

On Implementation

“I have a practice in New York City, in New Jersey and Connecticut. It’s a corporate center. And I wanted to be able to have a conversation with corporations about the equine work.  I understood from my own background in corporate that outcomes were definitely needed. We had to show a way that we could measure how the horses were helping to benefit a corporation, either in their teams or in their strategic alignments or or whatever their goals are.”
Jody Jacob McVey

Managing Director, EquiSense Solutions

“What I loved most about the training was learning a proven method and hands-on training. Without both, I really don’t think you can be an effective facilitator or truly understand the beauty of the work.” 
Marissa Larson

Owner, ML Consulting, LLC

On E3A Certification 

“The E3A certification process was life changing for our program as well as me personally.  I had been doing this work for years with our horses but after the certification process the learning for our participants soared!  The certification process taught me how to facilitate discussion for our participants to identify their strengths as well as opportunities for transformation in their thoughts, beliefs, habits and actions.  The hands-on practice and feedback from the skilled Master Trainers gave me the confidence I needed to move our programs forward and grow in my role as a facilitator.”
