Horse whispering in action with a chance to learn all about it with an experienced person guiding you !!!

We have a team of horses and ponies available for you to explore this method of being with them or progress your partnership with your own four legged equine friend.  Our services include lessons, horse or pony training inclusive of backing or starting them, Sponsor a horse/pony, school holday programmes, lead rides, Ride to the Hills adventure and much more. Take a look on The Options page for the full list on offer.

In all of our services, particularly lessons, we place a large emphasis on teaching about how to keep yourself safer around The Horse whether it be when doing things on the ground or riding.  When in group situations we encourage people to think of others around them not just themselves.

There are many personal benefits with this method some of which are increased decision making skills, confidence, improved communication with others, self awareness and building a partnership which is beneficial to both parties i.e. the horse and you.

We teach more than just riding but life skills too.

We look forward to meeting you and enhancing your experience of horses and ponies.
