Through Changing Lives through Horses, we reconnect young people to communities through the magic of horses, allowing them to rekindle the desire to continue within education and training, while simultaneously gaining the tools required to support themselves into a career pathway of their choice.

An equine lifeline

Changing Lives Through Horses is an alternative education programme of regular sessions, taking place at Deen City Farm with qualified and experienced BHS acreditied proffessional coaches

The programme is suitable for young people, aged 9-25, who have special needs and may be either permanently excluded, or at risk of exclusion in its widest sense, and those who are not in employment, education, or training (NEET). They may also be at risk of becoming socially excluded with income below the poverty line and without the skills to improve their economic situation. 

The CLtH programme uses a range of awards and achievements within a professional equine setting linked to the school curriculum, but focused and structured towards promoting holistic development and nurturing six life skills: building relationships, communication, confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and perseverance. 

Our Changing Lives program runs during school term time.  Sessions cost £30 per hour group, £40 per hour private and £39 for half hour riding.
