Equine Encounters

Welcome to our EQUINE ENCOUNTERS, held here at MILL HOUSE EQUESTRIAN CENTRE. We cater for those with learning difficulties and other complex disabilities and needs. 

Our horse’s soothing rhythm, warmth and walk pace provides a unique therapeutic opportunity. These specific attributes can initiate changes in the client as listed below.

Physical benefits can include improved;

  • Strength/muscle tone
  • Mobility/flexibility
  • Balance
  • Coordination

      Mental and other benefits can include an increase in;
      • Self esteem
      • Self control
      • Self confidence
      • Concentration, learning and verbal skills
      • Social skills
        • Activities with horses are proven to reduce anxiety, encourage interaction and offer a haven where disabled people can experience a freedom that they might not otherwise have access to.

          Our 25 minute equine encounters will mainly consist of walking / trotting, depending on the clients ability, around our arena and fields. We also have a river running through our property where the horses can paddle and this has proven to be very popular with all our clients.
          We can arrange our ‘Equine Encounters’ to a day and time to suit you and your residents.

          The cost is £15pp for 25 minutes. Shorter / longer encounters are available on request.

          For any further information please contact us.
