Based in the beautiful Staffordshire Countryside we are a friendly equestrian centre offering equine therapy.
The therapeutic benefit of animals is not a secret, the use of animals for relaxation and improved health dates as far back as Cleopatra and her famous cats and before this. It is not just the animals which are of great benefit but also being outside exploring the environment and all it has to offer.
The Benefits of equine and animal assisted programmes include
Increased mobility & fitness
Increased co-ordination and muscle control
Reduced muscle spasms
Increase socialisation skills
Teamwork and responsibility
Pursuing goal orientated challenges
And most importantly relaxed individuals with big smiles!
We can offer a range of equine activities -promoting fun whilst engaging minds and keeping active, to the more goal orientated equine facilitated learning – developing structured programmes focusing on individual requirements and skills. Certificates can be awarded at the successful completion of each goal. These programmes are created for each individual and can range from increasing focus or mobility, learning to trot on the horse or as far as going to a competition.
All equine learning programmes are on a one to one basis allowing a structured personal approach. Equine activities can be one to one or a maximum of groups of 3.
We also have a therapy room and meeting room onsite all physiotherapists, counsillors and other therapists are welcome to use the facilities
