Alternative Education therapy with horses
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.
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.
Horses are incredibility sensitive to body language and emotions and witnessing the horse’s response to behaviour promotes our pupils self-awareness and can help them 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
We have seen our students grow and mature enormously over the course of the programs and thrive with increased confidence and new skills acquired.
