Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre is bringing the Cartier Farms EAL Certification Program to Ontario, providing those who dream of a career with horses a new, nationally recognized choice for certification. Equine Assisted Learning is a growing field with a broad base of applications, including youth development, PTSD support, leadership development, team building and psychotherapy. In an industry that remains unregulated it can be challenging to find a certification program that is standardized and proven effective.

The Cartier partnership spent 10 years researching the lasting benefits of EAL and developed a user-friendly, flexible, teachable curriculum that others could learn and implement at their own facility. Cartier Farms then partnered with the Saskatchewan Horse Federation / Equine Canada to nationally recognize and certify this unique and innovative Building Block Equine-Assisted Learning Certification Program © to provide a standardized educational format for individuals interested in expanding their industry knowledge, as well as increase their business' marketability and income potential. Beyond expanding career options, the expansion of this certification program in Ontario will allow more facilities to provide quality equine learning programs that consumers can trust.

“Our program helps clients start off on the right foot with a turn-key and results focused certified program. We are excited to be joining forces with Dreamwinds to drive continued growth of the EAL industry in Ontario” says Gayle Cartier, Owner of Cartier Farms.

Dreamwinds owner, Tracey Evans, completed her certification at Cartier Farms in 2012 to realize her dream of running a successful EAL business. With a passion for helping others reach their full potential, Dreamwinds’ programs focus on developing confidence, leadership, communication and team building skills among youth, women, families and corporate teams.

“We are thrilled to be bringing the original Building Block Equine-Assisted Learning Certification Program © to Ontario to help others embark on this exciting career with a proven and nationally recognized program.” says Tracey Evans, Owner/Program Director of Dreamwinds Equine Assisted Learning Centre.
