Therapeutic horsemanship has many benefits, improving mental and physical wellbeing in a number of ways.
It can help anyone.
We cover a range of activities with the horses. Our aim is for participants to enjoy building a trusting partnership with the horse while learning new skills.
Here are some of the ways this is achieved:-
Learning how to take care of a horse, including grooming, feeding, mucking out and care of their fields
Finding out how horses communicate, through body language and energy
Bonding with the horse through massage and play
Different ways of interacting with the horse, including leading, long reining and free interaction
Learning about horse behaviour by watching the herd in the fields.
Giving a practical and relaxed approach, with an emphasis on a trusting partnership between horse and human.
Through horse activities, participants will also learn the importance of taking care of the countryside to maintain a sustainable environment for the horses.
