Learning With Horses:

Learning is experimental, triggering a number of challenges along the way. Equines offer a structured, supportive learning environment to help develop social, emotional and language skills. Students develop new and inventive ways to problem solve, over come barriers and enhance communications skills. 

We offer student placements onsite, full or part time, to suit every ability and challenge faced by young people
