Personalised and Subsidised Equine Therapy

Subsidised Mental Health Support

Our grant subsidised programmes can be accessed free at the point of use.

Virtual Sessions

COVID-19 and the resulting lockdown are having an enormous toll on people’s mental health. Children and adults are both vulnerable to the traumatic effects of the COVID-19 crisis and the stresses of the lock down.  If you need support during this difficult time, we can help.

With support from Leicestershire Communities Fund, we have been able to move our therapy and mental health support to an online/distance format. Through online interaction we can continue to offer vital emotional and mental health support, minimising the negative effects of the pandemic on mental health.

We are offering two types of support: one to one support sessions and group support.

To enquire about our one-to-one and group mental health and virtual sessions please contact:

Also please see our Horse Warriors FB group.

Project Pony

A long-term relation-building programme with an animal, sharing your journey with them.

The Project Pony programme allows individuals to come and work alongside a horse over a minimum term of three months. This provides them with time and guidance to develop, transform and heal. The longer, the better. The sessions teach individuals about being present in each moment, analysing sensory experiences, emotional agility and understanding horse body language which provides a reflection of their own emotional state.

Over time, the healing process allows individuals to completely free themselves from feelings of self-doubt, fear and anger, letting them to move forward into a happier, more productive life. We offer the person strategies to manage their anxiety, anger and understand emotions and fear.  Without these skills, we can become lost, depressed and even suicidal.

Recovery Ranch

Recovery Ranch is a three mouth long programme of mental heal support designed to help people recover from the psychological impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

During the programme people will be offered the chance to participant in reflective and confidence building equine activities designed to provide people with the tools to help manage the symptoms of anxiety and depression, begin healing their trauma and to become more resilient. Participants will interact with our animals, many who have been rescued, sharing their journey with them. The sessions teach individuals about being present in each moment, analysing sensory experiences, emotional agility and understanding horse body language which provides a reflection of their own emotional state. We will facilitate you to move forward into a happier, more productive life.
