Seeing is believing.
We have witnessed more transformative life changing connections than 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.
Most people are inclined to jump straight to the idea that we offer riding as our main activity, and yet this couldn't be further from 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.

“After two months of accessing equine sessions we have seen a reduction in incidents within H’s residential setting. It is clear he is able to regulate his behaviour more independently and positively. He has started to communicate how he is feeling verbally rather than through his behaviour and he thoroughly looks forward to his weekly sessions. Without the support of Circles Equine I am sure this would have resulted in another placement breakdown for this young person which would have really impacted his self worth and emotional wellbeing”
