Horse Project

Alternative Education therapy with horses

Company of Horsemen

The Company of Horsemen is a family Based Equestrian business situated in the heart of beautiful Staffordshire countryside. The Company performs trick riding, jousting and western performances at numerous country shows and events all over the U.K and aboard and have also been used on the sets of various films and television productions. The change in environment for the students can come as a greatly needed therapy in its self, the physical side and the outdoors help combat pent up energy in a positive way. Horses are incredibility sensitive to our body language and emotions, witnessing the horse’s response to behaviour promote self-awareness and can help people see themselves in a more realistic way. Our aims are to:

  • Improve communication skills
  • Overcome fears
  • Work as part of a team
  • Build trust
  • Set boundaries
  • Achieve goals
  • Develop aspirations to go onto a career in the equine industry
  • Learn to be more respectful

In conjunction with The Horsemen we have designed an outdoor provision program aimed at offering our pupils the chance to attend their training centre and learn all aspects of caring for, riding and performing with horses.

We have seen our students grow and mature enormously over the course of the programs and thrive with increased confidence and new skills acquired
