Meet our Horses
Our horses are our four-legged therapists, carefully selected for their calm temperament and soundness. The legs of these beautiful animals become the legs of our riders, allowing them a sense of freedom they seldom experience elsewhere in life. Through individual Rider Goals, set by our Coach in conjunction with others involved in the care and education of the rider, we see measurable improvements for our riders through their engagement with our programmes.
The movement of a horse naturally emulates ours by being three dimensional. This provides therapy and improves the well-being and mobility of our riders. A special bond quickly develops between horse and rider.
Horse riding is a unique form of exercise and rehabilitation. The complex movement of the horse helps to improve coordination, balance, muscular development and fitness. Horse riding and horse-related activities assist in the development and restoration of personal confidence, self esteem, communication skills, leadership and trust. For people with challenging behaviour for example, horses offer a powerful medium for restoring a sense of personal control, which significantly improves behaviour towards family, teachers and friends.
