OUR TEAM

HORSES AND HUMANS have brought together three very experienced and qualified equestrian specialists. They each share a love for horses and a passion for using their skills to deliver the interventions needed to bring sustainable, positive change to lives of adults, teenagers and children in need. The impact of their work with participants can be quite extraordinary.

Programs are held in an idyllic rural setting. Our horse partners are very well cared for, are fully vaccinated, and offer a wide range of personalities, ages and levels of training. This gives our facilitators a variety of options to challenge, support and connect with the children on the program.

The following qualifications are held by the business partners:
