Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning (EFEL) or Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) refer to activities done with horses geared toward experiential learning. Equine assisted learning or equine facilitated experiential learning activities are typically offered to groups  r individuals. (Family, Work team building, Couples). The difference between equine assisted learning and equine assisted therapy is one of the confusing concepts in the emerging field of equine assisted work. (Therapy usually involves a Licensed Professionsl)

Learning activities can be used to reengage individuals such as students in academic learning as well as with high risk adolescents in alternative school programs. Typically, the clients participate in an activity with the horses on the ground, and the trained facilitator guides the learning process. Rather than focusing on personal issues, the focus is on concepts and principles.
