‘CHANGING LIVES THROUGH HORSES & DOGS’
A perfect course for young people who don’t quite fit into mainstream school and who would thrive in an environment such as ours.
We passionately believe that animals have a remarkable role to play in the help available to young people when more traditional methods have failed them. The equestrian & canine environment provides a powerful way of inspiring young people to connect, improve well-being and become productive members of society.
We will work in partnership to deliver a programme which meets the needs of disengaged young people, to change their lives through the development of key life skills, and engage them back into society. The success of the programme will be measured through the evidence of change within key skill areas.
The course that we are working towards is designed for beginners so it is not important for the young person to have any experience working with horses, dogs or the outdoors, they simply have to show a desire to be in this environment.
