We are a Community Interest Company delivering Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) and Equine Assisted Growth & Learning (EAL); treatment models where interactive experiences with horses are used to foster emotional, social and psychological growth.
We believe by building relationships with horses (especially in their natural environment) a person can come to know themselves better. By understanding how their behaviour affects their horse, they can begin to see how this behaviour affects others. Through exploring new ways to interact with the horse, clients can begin to learn new, constructive, ways of interacting with the people in their lives, outside of the arena. During this process a person will also have the opportunity to develop improved communication with others and learn to manage the expression of their feelings with greater clarity.
Taking part in a social interactive activity and using our therapy program has proven to help individuals on offending pathways build a sense of self worth and develop a desire to succeed and integrate positively in society.
