Horses and countryside supporting people’s recuperation

About us

Since 2014 we have supported people along their treatment journey, many facing life changes. We believe everyone has the right to accessible, enjoyable activities and to socialise during periods of incapacity, in a safe, non-medical setting.

Our gentle veteran horses and beautiful countryside spaces allow people the time they need to get away from life centred around their health priorities; to relax, reflect and start to grow again. Peer support is paramount in our work – we are a community, not a service. People build new friendships, explore new interests, and find confidence. Our work is recognised by Health & Care Commissioners.

Pathways to recuperation

Therapy & Counselling

Whether someone is unwell for the short term or longer, lifestyle adjustments often have to be made. These changes can have a detrimental impact on both a patient’s and care giver’s lives.

People access our therapies to ease their experience of ill health, treatment and life changing circumstances.

Counselling is offered by our partner therapist Jenni Flight MBACP (Accred). BSc.HonsDip.Counselling, Dip Equine Coaching.

Group Activities

Our nature based activities are for people experiencing poor mental health, physical discomfort or who’s mobility or cognitive ability has been effected.  Our group activities ensure everyone has a safe experience while enjoying a social time away from the clinical setting.
