We have successfully worked with The Horse Course for the last 7 years.
The Horse Course participants can have serious challenges in their lives -they are referred because they are ‘stuck’ or disengaged from talk-based support. The horse course teaches, rehearse and repeat key resilience and relationship skills in an intensive and challenging, but fun, programme with feedback in-the-moment from specially trained horses and 1-to-1 facilitator support.
The proven outcomes are that students
- Are less anxious (with a 33% average improvement)
- Have reduced problem behaviours
- Improved attendance/engagement at school, training or work
- Improved relationships with peers, families and professionals
- Increased self belief and hope
