For Support & Wellbeing
Time for Space, Time For You
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” and to be totally present in the moment. Equine-facilitated sessions help individuals 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, Help 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 one of our horses or 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.
