Youth Development Programme

We help children who are suffering from a range of disadvantages.

Without support these children often fall into negative patterns and face significant problems throughout life. Our intervention empowers children to create positive lifelong changes for themselves. We do this by empowering children to develop social and communication skills as they learn how to handle, care for and ride a pony empathetically, respectfully and safely.

Children are motivated to develop the critical skills needed to thrive in life. They learn to be mindful and to take control of themselves on a mental, emotional and physical level.

We are more similar to the horse than you might imagine. By learning how horses communicate and form relationships, children reflect and improve on their own communication and relationship skills and improve on their own communication and relationship skills.
