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 programmes and one-to-one sessions 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. Reflect on challenges and develop insights and new pathways for learning which are transferable back into everyday day life.


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 office 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.

We want to create more programmes that can offer disadvantaged children and young people aged between 5 yrs and 25 yrs the opportunity for growth and learning.  We work with children and young people who for what ever reason have become vulnerable and excluded, or 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.

Outcomes of equine facilitated learning are being proved to help with:
• Growth in self confidence and awareness
• Increased self esteem
• Reductions in anxiety and stress
• Courage to form relationships

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

Help us become sustainable by coming on a workshop, programme, or one-to-one session:

When you come on our Art of Leadership, Personal Development and Art of Horse Whispering workshops all profits go towards our children and young people programmes.

We started running workshops, programmes and one-to-one sessions in the summer of 2015, and we are already having some great feedback from the people who have experienced equine facilitated learning at Adventures with Horses. You can read more here.
