The work we are doing has the potential to change lives for the better. We offer equine facilitated learning to help children and young people who are vulnerable and excluded. We help adults find the leader within, and our personal development and art of horse whispering workshops help people of all ages find the courage to move forward, reconnect with nature, and step into what has meaning and harmony in their lives.

By engaging with horses in experiential learning and equine facilitated education, a wide range of people, both adults and youth, can practice leadership skills, communication skills and mindfulness skills. Build self confidence, self awareness and creativity. Develop trust, empathy, and responsibility for self and others. Explore new ways of inspiring others, building teams with greater flexibility, power and creativity. Learn to set boundaries without losing sight of the whole. Reflect on challenges and develop insights and new pathways for learning which are transferable back into everyday day life.

Adventures with Horses offers growth and learning through the naturally occurring therapeutic opportunities connecting with horses can give. People often believe they have something to teach horses. We ask instead what can horses teach us…


Our work divides into four areas:

• Programmes for Children and Young People 
• Organisational and Professional Development and Leadership 
• Personal Development and Growth
• The Art of Horse Whispering

Programmes for Children and Young People
By stepping into the world of the horse, children and young people learn essential life skills that cannot always be learned in the classroom. Example outcomes include reductions in anxiety and stress, increased self esteem, and reduced problem behaviours and hence better social inclusion. We offer programmes and one-to-one sessions.

Organisational Development and Leadership
Step out of the boardroom and into nature to develop leadership, team building skills and insights into organisational development and moving forward in times of change. See more here...

Personal Development and Growth
Through a gentle process of enquiry, we invite horses to become our teachers for personal growth and transformative learning.

The Art of Horse Whispering
Through meeting the horses in ‘their field’, in their culture, participants learn to build connection and explore how to enter a relationship with the horse which is equal, not power over.
Suitable for young people of all ages! Adult groups, children and young people groups and family groups.



Equine Facilitated Learning is an emerging field in which horses and humans work together experientially. Participants engage with the horses to learn about themselves and others; there are various models, but at the heart of each is the extraordinary insights horses can provide, by just being horses!

Over the next six weeks as we lead into Christmas, the New Year and beyond, we are hoping to raise £7500, this is the link to the campaign which will be live from early December

The work we are doing has the potential to change lives for the better. By pledging a donation or an award you will be helping Adventures with Horses start to flourish and thrive into a sustainable social enterprise that can offer more people the benefits of equine facilitated learning.

We particularly want to create more programmes that can offer disadvantaged people the opportunity for growth and learning. Outcomes of equine facilitated learning are being proved to help with:

• Growth in self confidence

• Increased self esteem

• Reductions in anxiety and stress


Which can lead to:

• Better engagement and motivation

• Building new skills and knowledge

• Gaining new hope, vision and the courage to move forward

• Reduced problem behaviours in children and young people. This includes working with children and young people, aged between 9 and 25 years, who may have special educational needs and/or other challenges, such as those diagnosed with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, including young people who are not in education, employment, or training.

We would also like to encourage more adults to come on our professional and personal development workshops, or our Art of Horse Whispering adventure days. By doing so you are making an investment in yourself or your organisation, and you help finance our young people programmes. Also if you run a business and come on one of our leadership or organisational change workshops, you could be fulfilling your corporate social responsibility goals. You can do this now through pledging and receiving a big saving on our normal prices. One of the main ways we will become sustainable is through more people coming on our professional and personal development workshops, so please come.

We started running workshops, programmes and one-to-sessions in the summer of 2015, and we are already having some great feed back from the people who have experienced equine facilitated learning at Adventures  with Horses. Please see our stories and testimonials here.
