RESILIENCE:  THAT QUALITY THAT ALLOWS US TO OVERCOME AND MOVE PAST A NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE AND HAVE A  POSITIVE OUTCOME.  ALL CHILDREN MUST DEVELOP THIS ABILITY IF THEY ARE TO SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATE THE CHALLENGES AND OBSTACLES OF THEIR CHILDHOOD AND TRANSITION TO HEALTHY ADOLESCENTS, TEENAGERS AND, FINALLY, ADULTS. YET MANY CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY THOSE DEEMED TO BE "AT-RISK" HAVE A MORE DIFFICULT TIME DEVELOPING THIS SINGULAR TRAIT THAT WILL ALLOW FOR THEIR ULTIMATE SUCCESS. 

ADULTS, WHO HAVE UNDERGONE TRAUMATIC EVENTS, MAY ALSO NEED TO RE-LEARN THIS SKILL IN ORDER TO LIVE A MORE FULL AND SATISFYING LIFE.

AT RADIGAN'S PLACE, EQUINE ASSISTED LEARNING  PROGRAMS ARE DESIGNED SO THAT ALL CHILDREN, THEIR FAMILIES, AND ADULTS MAY ACQUIRE THIS MOST CRITICAL OF  SKILLS THEREBY  ALLOWING THEM TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL

THE PROGRAMMING AT RADIGAN'S PLACE IS BASED ON THE TRAINING OF GREG KERSTEN, FOUNDER OF EAGALA, AND THE INVALUABLE INSPIRATION FOR OUR WORK.
HIS 'OK CORRAL SERIES'  SETS FORTH THE PRINCIPLES USED IN OUR PROGRAMS. ADDITIONALLY,
ALL INSTRUCTORS HAVE ACHIEVED CERTIFICATION DIRECTLY FROM MR. KERSTEN. WE, AT RADIGAN'S PLACE, ARE DEEPLY INDEBTED TO GREG FOR HIS DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE AS WELL AS HIS GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT AS AN EDUCATOR AND TRAINER. BECAUSE OF HIS WORK, WE CAN SHOW THE MANY WAYS  HORSES MIRROR HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND HOW OUR OWN PERSONAL GROWTH AND UNDERSTANDING CAN BE FOSTERED WHEN WE WORK WITH HORSES.    


HAVING BEEN TRAINED AND CERTIFIED BY THE FOUNDER OF EAGALA MEANS THAT WE PROVIDE PROGRAMMING AT ITS HIGHEST LEVEL.  
HERE IS WHAT THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF EAGALA SAID ABOUT GREG KERSTEN: 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

"I have always credited you as the creator and creative genius
behind EAGALA and EAP.  I have always said that to others                                                           
as well as you that no one is as good as you at EAP.  You are the founder."
 -Lynn T., Executive Director,    EAGALA
