What We Do

Holiday Programmes 

Our latest Horse Holiday Programme flew by! We would love to have you at our next one!

In our holiday programmes school-aged participants come for 3 days a week and have fun
with animals, gain confidence and learn about themselves as we teach horsemanship skills 

and farm skills with lots of group challenges and fun as we go.

 

Participants get to work with a range of animals including

miniature horses, donkeys, dogs,ponies and larger horses.

 

We have lots of laughs and jokes and

make lots of friends with others with similar interests

and we work with animals and play horse games.

 

 We have a team of Holiday Programme leaders who work in

small groups with the participants, and we love getting to know

the kids and having lots of fun with them!
We also take time to just hang out with the animals,

getting to cuddle and play with them, and participants build strong, trusting

connections with the animals and often find one horse that they really click with.
It is always a bit of a tear-jerker when we all have to leave on the 
last day!

● grooming horses and preparing feeds
