Other details

Geographical remit: 


We are a unique 'horse powered' intervention service. We work with children and young people who are at risk of social exclusion and for whom 'talk based' therapies are not working. We are the only 'evidence based' equine programme in the UK with 85% of our participants showing improved engagement/attendance at school.


We work 1 to 1 with our participants who are sent by professional referral only. We work over a week on a series of specific tasks, helping participants develop core emotional and social skills, with 'in the moment feedback' from our specially trained horses.
