Health & Safety

The Health and Safety of our participants and staff is very important to us and to ensure that we meet, and strive to exceed standards we:

• Hold Public Liability Insurance to £5 million
• Hold Local Authority Equestrian Establishment Licence
• Assess risks and goals prior to commencement
• Guarantee that all staff hold up to date enhanced Criminal Records Bureau checks
• Guarantee that a qualified First Aider is on site at all times
• Provide riding hats and suitable footwear that meet current safety standards
• Ensure that all staff attend regular Therapeutic Horsemanship, Equine Assisted Learning/ Equine Assisted Therapy (EAL/T), and natural horsemanship training

We are keen to discuss any aspect of the project, if you require further or specific details relating to information on this page please turn to our contact page. (Please note that the young people featured throughout this website are models)
