Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) Program
A Different View Equine Center is dedicated to making a lasting, positive impact through our unmounted, experiential learning program.
What is EFL?
Sarah Douglas is our EFL Level 1 Practitioner who is certified through The HERD Institute. At ADV there is no "one size fits all" and we meet you right where you are with no expectations. There is an unlimited range of opportunities for personal growth when humans partner with our herd. Just about everything we do revolves around relationships. Building, maintaining and strengthening relationships can be one of the most important “tools” that lead to a more fulfilling life. When we have a healthier relationship with ourselves, we are more equipped to handle life's stressors, cope with change, work through triggers, and achieve our personal goals.

Our Most Common Questions
What is unmounted?
We are not a traditional riding program and currently do not offer any riding programs.
This is equine therapy, right?
No, we are not therapists and sessions are not intended to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. We often hear that the experience was "therapeutic" and beneficial. EFL can and has improved the lives of countless numbers of people around the world!
Do I need to have experience with horses?
NOPE! Safety is a priority on the farm. We will provide you with the proper training to ensure that all humans and animals are as safe as possible.
What are the fees associated with each session?
We have never charged a fee for services at ADV. Donations are always appreciated and help us to ensure that we can continue to provide the best services possible.
I am interested but not fully sure it is the right thing for me.
Send us a text or email with your information and we will schedule a consultation. This will give you an opportunity to visit the farm, get to know us a bit, and ask questions.
EFL is best understood and appreciated when it is experienced!
