Overview of Support offered

We provide a variety of programs teaching Life Skills Through Natural Horsemanship at our facility in Bromsgrove. Over the past three years we have mainly provided eight week courses set to a specific day each week, whole week residential camps, or two week courses. We also have facility for respite care in our furnished Log Cabin.

We run a herd of eleven horses of various breeds and sizes and all of them are trained in Natural Horsemanship. This is a method which is mainly about how a horse thinks and feels and how he lives naturally in a herd. (family) When the young people start a program they are introduced to the horses and after gaining some understanding of how the horse thinks and feels about them, they choose a horse to engage with and care for for the duration of the time that they are with us. (An allergy to horses will not exclude anyone as we have some hypoallergenic horses). Interacting with such a powerful and spirited animal instils a sense of self-worth and self confidence, this benefits, in particular those people who, as a result of prolonged mental stress and/or abuse, have often perceived themselves as powerless. Horses will teach them many skills to equip them for life, in particular boundary setting, leadership, communication, connection, assertiveness, decision making, problem solving, negotiating skills, working as part of a team, and to care for others. Confidence and self-esteem grows as they start to trust and connect with the horses heart. The horses will never lie to them and love them unconditionally, and with patience, leadership, compassion and firmness they begin to have faith that they can overcome their pasts and equip themselves for every situation they may face.
