Overview of Support offered

The course helps increase self-belief. We find that young people begin to overcome their fears, not only with horses, but with the ability to improve working with others. They develop relationships and communication skills with the horses and humans. The course enables people to take responsibility and control.
Through some of the tasks we do it enables people to gain a better understanding of how others think and feel, therefor developing resilience. You can learn to ride a horse.
