Equine Partners CIC - Horses and Humans Journeying Together to support families in tough times
Equine Partners has been set up to help struggling families / children / adults by learning with horses. With the horses we can help them learn to cope with what life has thrown at them. Development and ethical practice are important to us, We follow the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Managment ) code of practice to ensure that we provide high-quality sessions and offer a solutions-focused approach to therapy.Why the community needs us
We work with children and families who are struggling to cope with day-to-day life, this may be due to bereavement, relationship breakdown, or health-related issues etc, We aim to offer a solutions-focused approach to life's problems. Including horses in a therapeutic context offers a non-judgmental situation, and the animals provide their own clear feedback on what they are faced with! Families become more settled, enabling children to continue their education and have brighter futures.Our impact on the community
Following sessions with us, children have succeeded in mainstream school when previously they were not attending at all. Others have self-assessed and recognised that they are better able to manage their emotions. Families have stated that they live a more harmonious home life and are able to resolve issues within the family unit successfully.
