About us

We create an experience of sanctuary for people within our sanctuary for rescued horses and ponies through our Equine Assisted Services

We offer human equine interaction through equine assisted learning, equine assisted wellbeing and equine assisted activities to children, young people and adults in our community with our rescued horses and ponies. People of all ages relate to our horses’ and ponies’ life stories, especially how they have overcome adverse experiences, which brings hope, a renewed sense of meaning and future direction to the lives of our participants.

We are a fully inclusive organisation offering both a person-centred and equine-centred approach.

As an equine welfare charity, our horses’ and ponies’ needs are paramount. Our horses and ponies are equal partners in our team. You can find out more about our extensive equine welfare standards here:
