Katie's story

With the support of the BHS’s Changing Lives through Horses programme, Katie’s life has been transformed

  • Last reviewed: 28th September 2023

We’re supporting young people to discover the transformative power of working with horses and how the horse-human bond can lead to increased confidence and self-esteem.

Our Changing Lives through Horses programme has already inspired 2,000 young people to take their first steps into the equine world.

Katie came to one of our BHS Approved Centres, Parbold Equestrian Centre, following a spell of difficulties at her school. Her experience at Parbold has been transformational. The natural sense of structure and responsibility that comes with taking care of horses has helped Katie to secure some key life skills that she can continue to use successfully into the future.

Help us to safeguard the future of the equestrian industry and allow young people like Katie to experience the power of horses.
