The Hargreaves Foundation supports Therapeutic Horsemanship

January 2021

The Trustees of The Hargreaves Foundation have approved funding for Therapeutic Horsemanship to help a young person’s ongoing recovery following childhood trauma.

Therapeutic Horsemanship provides the opportunity for individuals to gain new skills, develop trust and build confidence through equine based activities. A relationship based on trust and partnership facilitates the rewarding interaction between horse and human.    

“Evidence continues to grow regarding the therapeutic benefits of horsemanship, being in nature and the outdoors.  Early feedback has been positive and we are looking forward to following progress.”
