Hope Meadows Equine Assisted Recovery CIC – Horses for Health

Back to Support
Last Updated: 15/07/2024

Within the 45mins, clients are supported to catch their horse from the field, groom them, learn to put on a saddle and bridle, ride the horse, and then care for the horse post-exercise.

Riding instruction will draw somewhat from traditional models of teaching, but also incorporate more holistic equine therapy approaches. This can include a focus on breathing, intention, body language and energy levels (both horse and rider) to develop more intuitive horse-rider connection. It may also involve playing games and other enjoyable activities whilst on the horse.
