If you’ve ever heard of equine-assisted learning, you’re aware of the benefits of kids spending time with horses. It’s more than just an idea; studies repeatedly find that spending time with horses has a huge positive impact on children’s development.
These studies began when children with learning disabilities were found to be highly responsive to working with horses. Since then, the practise has spread to others fields, with benefits being found for students, adults and people suffering from PTSD.
The reason is not entirely understood, but children seem to show a unique receptivity to working with horses.
We’ve compiled a list of the main benefits that people experience when doing work with horses. All of the effects are supported by experimental evidence.
Increases in Self esteem.
Greater attention spans.
Higher levels of trust.
Lower cortisol levels.
(Cortisol is the hormone in the brain linked to stress.)
Higher levels of trust.
Decreases in anger.
The amazing effect of horses has been used to make education more effective, with equine-assisted learning programs. It’s even been introduced to the world of psychology, with some practitioners looking into equine-assisted psychotherapy!
These studies confirm what most horse people knew intuitively; there’s something about horses that changes humans for the better.

An Explanation Of The Shed Building Process
Building your shed can be quite an extended and stressful process, especially for bigger projects. However we can break this process down into a simplified streamline process of 8 steps when working with Central Steel Build. These steps are listed below.
Having a consultation with an industry specific sales representative is the start of your journey. We will do our best to arrive at the best building solution according to your needs. All of our jobs are customized to our clients specifications.
After arriving on a plan for your building we will conduct a free on-site inspection and survey. The purpose of this visit is to assess your shed site in accordance with things like access, drainage etc.
Next is the design and planning of your shed. Our drafting team will focus on creating a design of shed that meets all your specific requirements and exceeds your expectations in quality.
After completing the design we move on to the legal side of Building Permits and Council Approvals. We are registered builders offer to take care of your Building Permit as a complimentary service. However this service is only applicable for rural and domestic buildings and we do not look after Planning Permits.
Engineering is the next stage of the building process. Our engineers will finalise all details down to each individual component. These will be drawn up and sent to be laser cut for manufacture.
Step 6 is when your shed is manufactured locally in our Kyneton factory. The workshop team work diligently to ensure attention to every detail on every project. We operate with LEAN manufacturing to ensure workshop conditions to be clean, orderly, neat and safe 100% of the time.
Now your shed is ready to be constructed on-site. We have a set of high quality installation teams which ensure your shed is erected safely and quickly. During this stage your project manager will keep you informed with install dates etc.
