Seeing is believing.

We have witnessed more transformative life changing connections that we could ever list. Learning is always advanced when our emotions are ignited and our ponies are masters at lifting us way above the ordinary and making us laugh, love and breathe.

Enhancing lives

Most people are inclined to jump straight to the  idea that we offer riding as our  main activity, and yet this couldnt be further for the truth. Horses and ponies have so much more to give, they are empathetic, powerful, engaging and communicative. Our aim is to develop synergy between humans and equines and watch the magic happen.

There is no limit other than our  own imagination to the variety of games, tasks, energy medicine, dances, artwork , conversations, team building, leadership development, body language, interaction, mindfulness and meditation that can  be provided as the bonds of trust and friendship  are stimulated.

Who might benefit from participating?

We like to think that any animal lover might benefit from our work.
We know for sure that the following groups have loved their time with us and gained from the experience.

Disabled and disadvantaged children, young people and adults of all ages
People with attachment difficulties, autism, ADHD and ADD
Corporate groups and teams
People who are at risk of isolation
People transitioning through any major change such as:
Illness or trauma
School or college
Employment or retirement
New beginnings

Peoples’ lives can be positively influenced and permanently changed by spending time with horses. 

 

Those that make it happen.

We are extremely fortunate in receiving financial and practical support from our wonderful sponsores. This assistance enables us to sustain an excellent team, lovely fascilities, and the equipment and resoursces that ensure we can work with hundreds each year.

Special thanks to the organisations listed below and to the many individual donors who wish to remain anonymous, from a bag of carrots to a sizeable charitable grant every contribution counts.
