Kids Helping Horses, Horses Helping Kids

Kids helping horses

Our horses and ponies are cared for and trained by local children. Many of them had never had close contact with a horse before. They are soon on their way to building the relationships of trust that are the cornerstone of our training.

The more experienced kids help the younger ones teach the horses to overcome their fears and learn the skills needed to be ridden horses, ready for new homes. If that's not possible, they continue to care for them in the sanctuary.

Horses helping kids

Horses are extraordinary teachers. They do not lie, they do not fall for the images we create to protect ourselves. They do not care if you are rich or poor, if your jeans are designer or tatty. They only see you, the real you.

Our horses help our kids find that person inside. They teach them about self worth, trust and confidence. The help them express themselves without anger but instead with understanding. They teach them to listen, and to be listened to. They help them to succeed.
