Situation

Access to horses is becoming increasingly more difficult in our automated and techno-minded world. Those with learning difficulties and children from deprived backgrounds may never see a live horse in their lifetime. Healing with Horses seeks to help solve that problem by giving access to horses in many and varied ways

Solution

Healing with Horses aims to take horses out to areas where children and those with difficulties can experience equestrian involvement as well as inviting small groups in to get hands on with normal care. It is already proven that caring for animals in the right was is beneficial and can break the terrible cycle of aggression that many disadvantaged kids grow up in. simply herd watching can teach how to interact and react in a positive way.
