Time for Space, Time For You
Humans can experience a multitude of benefits when being fully present in the moment with horses. Our equine-facilitated therapeutic sessions enable individuals to have time and space to be at one with nature and find peace within themselves. Time with our ponies provides the opportunity to remember what it is to be a human “being” rather than a human “doing” which can bring a sense of profound calm. Equine-facilitated sessions provide individuals with the opportunity to feel more grounded, to re-connect with their authentic selves and to consider the purpose and direction of their lives. Clients are supported to work through problematic issues or difficult stages in their lives and to have the opportunity to explore a more positive way forwards.
Working in partnership with horses has been shown to help on many different levels: deepen personal awareness, increase confidence and self esteem, develop a better understanding of emotions and how to regulate them, help to identify and create boundaries, transform negative core beliefs, provide support for people recovering from the effects of trauma, depression and anxiety.
Being alongside our horses and ponies amongst nature provides an opportunity to stop, breathe and relax. It’s a time to become centred, just “be you” and focus on the connection with your equine partner. All work is ground-based (no riding) and no previous experience of horses is necessary. Sessions take place outdoors on our 6-acre smallholding, with wonderful views and plenty of wide-open space.

Individual Sessions
We facilitate safe interactions with the horses and ponies to help those who may be struggling with life or are seeking support with personal development. Being out in nature and with horses can give a fresh perspective and bring a sense of calm which improves mental well-being. These sessions are bespoke to the individual – young person or adult. Many adults access our services to understand and address stress, anxiety, depression, bereavement or to help to deal with other major life-changing life events. Equine-assisted therapy provides an alternative or an add-on to traditional room-based therapy and is experiential and dynamic.
We have worked successfully 1 to 1 with many children and adults with a variety of needs - Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, learning difficulties, eating disorders, those living with and beyond cancer, and those who have been bereaved. We have received very positive feedback on the impact of our tailored sessions from many of our clients who have felt that their experiences here have supported their wellbeing. For some people who we have supported have told us that their experiences with us has been life-affirming and life-changing.
