Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Need Horse Experience?
    Absolutely not! All of our programs (whether riding or on our life skills development programs on the ground) are designed for people of all experience levels. Safety is our highest priority and each participant will receive a safety orientation.
  • Do You Require A Therapist To Be Present For Your Equine Assisted Learning Programs? Is This Therapy?
    THIS IS NOT EQUINE THERAPY. We do not require a clinical professional with us to do these exercises, workshops and programs.
  • What Should I Wear? Do I Need Boots & A Helmet?
    There is no special clothing requirement to take part in any of our programs. The only thing that we ask is that you wear closed toed shoes for safety while you are working with the horses. That could be running shoes, cowboy boots, or any other footwear that will keep your toes safe. Dress for the weather and leave your favourite clothes at home. The arena has beautiful sand for our horses to enjoy, and while they love it, you may get a little dusty!! You must bring your own helmet & riding boots.
  • Are You Certified & Ensured?
    Yes! The facilitators at Lazy J Ranch are certified with Equine Connection - The Academy of Equine Assisted Learning, a leading organization in Equine Assisted Learning. As well as backed by The EAL Network a leading organization in this specific skills development program with horses. You can take comfort in knowing that we carry extensive insurance not only for us, but for you too! We want to make sure that every aspect of your experience is exceptional, and believe that you knowing we have you covered is part of that.
  • What If I'm Scared Or Don't Like Horses?
    No worries! If you aren't being pushed out of your comfort zone, you aren't learning. This is an opportunity to overcome fears or preconceived notions. Some of the people who have attended our programs have started out intimidated. By the end of the program, they have learned more about themselves, they have overcome their fears and walked out with life-altering results!
  • I'm Allergic!
    Knowing is half the battle! Just be sure to take an antihistamine before you come. If you don’t know if you are allergic to horses, we have allergy medicine onsite.
