Is this for me?

If you are interested in Horsewyse for children at your school or institution, or for private sessions, then we suggest that you arrange to view an ongoing session at the Therapy Centre, after which we can discuss the specific needs of your school.

Sessions are planned to an individual or groups own needs, and to follow how the group or individual is responding to the horses, and vice versa. However, all our activities are designed to achieve the following:

 

  • To help people understand how their actions and behaviour impact on others.

  • To develop both individual confidence and team-working skills by undertaking horse-based challenges.

  • To develop empathy through discussion of the horses’ behaviour and how this can be related to human behaviour.

To get an idea of what to expect, check out some of our past case histories.

During sessions
Session information

Our group sessions:

  • Up to four children/young people.

  • We can also work with groups of parents, family groups, teachers, and carers to address specific needs and/or provide ideas or material that can be developed in the classroom or at home.

 

Our individual sessions

  • Individual sessions typically last 1-hour, however we can provide longer sessions or work experience, in which the young person works alongside our equine specialist. Contact us for more information.

How many sessions are needed?

  • This varies and will depend on the needs of the individual and how quickly they are progressing
