This 8-week course will explore themes of resilience and wellbeing, harnessing the power of horses and nature for challenging times.

Using a mixture of talking, reflection and learning with the wisdom of the gentle Red Horse herd, we will invite you to explore and discover valuable skills for life and wellbeing in this fast-changing world.

You will be given the opportunity to…

 

·     Identify feelings & learn emotional intelligence.

·     Learn relaxation techniques

·     Practice mindfulness

·     Build confidence & self esteem 

·     Increase self-knowledge & self-direction

·     Foster a sense of belonging and connection

 

by taking part in gentle, non-ridden work on the ground with the herd and building relationships with the horses and each other.

No horse experience is necessary, just a willingness to explore and participate in a safe, confidential space in the beautiful setting of Red Horse Foundation.

 

The group is led by experienced mental health trained & equine assisted therapists, Alex Stirzaker and Lisanne Peters.

 

This course is for adults over 25 yrs.
