holistic horse rides
Love horses, but don't want to learn to ride or increase your experience through the traditional 'riding school'. Enjoy a chance to get into nature and into the saddle with our lovely team of horses. Reconnect with yourself physically and mentally.
Therapeutic Horsemanship and riding for children. If you want your child to learn how to look after and ride a pony in a fun, safe and interactive environment, then these are the sessions for you. Helping to teach responsibility, resilience and confidence.
Can be offered as part of a retreat, or for business in partnership with an organisational development consultant.
Horses live in herds and have simple social structures based around body movement and non-verbal communication. They offer a great way to develop team work, leadership, communication, respect, trust, resilience and self awareness by mirroring back our energy providing immediate feedback.
Horse training and rehabilitation is at the heart of what we do at Horse-Resource;
welfare for all - retraining rescue horses and helping them live happy and productive lives. We can offer one-month training boot-camps using the natural horsemanship approach or lessons and training for riders and their horses.
Interactive pony parties and events. Theme of your choice or our standard "Rainbow Pony" or "Sparkly Unicorn". Pony themed art and games, pony rides, obstacle course. Can also include face painting, magic unicorn shoe decorating and a cake.
Use of the horses for independent practitioners e.g. BHS approved instructors, hippotherapy, PT's, Ot's etc. Strict vetting process but we are open for collaboration to meet community needs to benefit as many lives.
Therapeutic Horsemanship works both ways, with Horse-Resource making a point of tending to the needs of the horses as well as the humans. Safeguarding children and Health & Safety are paramount.
All of our programs are bespoke and can be tailored to individual or group needs
and our ethos is to observe and not judge.
