Why Horses?

Horses are prey animals and naturally mirror the
thoughts and behaviour of others. They respond quickly to our body language, giving participants instant feedback on their actions and allowing connections to develop more easily. Horses are large, powerful animals that can challenge participants to overcome fear and expand their comfort zones. As a result, they gain confidence, empowerment, and self-esteem.

NOTE: If the participant requires 1-on-1 support, a parent or guardian will need to accompany them for the duration of the program.
