Equine Therapy and Husbandry

Our aim is to target functional, communication and language skills through the horse, building self-esteem and confidence. Horses are well known to have a therapeutic affect on those who care for them. 

 

Individual programmes cover:

 

  • Horse Husbandry; handling, grooming, feeding, worming

  • Land Management; Mechanical knowledge and operation of equipment, i.e. the muck-truck to clear the paddocks and the quad-bike to deliver the hay nets to fencing.

  • Riding; using a local school and a qualified instructor we provide progressive riding opportunity to our students.
