Our Programmes

Students can arrive unsure of themselves, many with personal challenges and its a privilege to see them forming a special bond
with a favourite horse, getting dirty around the farm, sharing about their lives, surprising themselves by facing fears, and leaving
with a renewed sense of achievement, identity and self-esteem.


Our programmes have some space to be adapted to suit participants,
so talk to us about your participants' needs.

Having vulnerable students working with our horses is really a small part of larger issues to do with family life and surrounding culture.
Students go home to the same environment, so we provide them with some tools hope, and resources to assist in their lives
and re-frame their situations.
