Solutions Through Horses

Our solutions through Horses programs bring a unique opportunity to participants, using our equine team members to engage, inspire and motivate participants. These experiences have positive outcomes including transference to life skills, improved wellbeing and practical skills in rural industries. This has resulted in increased engagement in school or vocational activities for many of our participants, including work opportunities.

  • Increase sense of personal control and in turn, behaviour accountability/responsibility
  • Assist with emotion regulations and frustration tolerance
