Meet the team

We work with mental health professionals, professionals from the armed forces and teaching staff from schools to assess, plan activities and evaluate outcomes. We work with clients using horses and other animals in the delivery of sessions designed to meet individual's needs. Working with horses whether on the ground, mounted or in the carriage has proven to impact positively on the wellbeing of both the mind and body.
