                                  ReStart Course

A high impact equine intervention which develops 8 identified and measurable skills in an active and engaging way.  Participants work 1:1 with a facilitator over 5 consecutive sessions with specially trained horses who provide in-the-moment feedback.  Participants rehearse, practice and repeat 8 key resilience skills throughout the course whilst completing a variety of fun tasks and obstacles with the horses.  The 8 key skills worked on during the course:

  • Assertiveness

  • Focus and perseverance

  • Taking responsibility

  • Empathy

  • Calmness

  • Planning

  • Communication

  • Engagement

Participants do not need to have any previous experience with horses, and even if they are worried or afraid of horses the course will be of benefit.  There is no riding involved, the intervention is all about communicating effectively with the horse from the ground and creating a partnership - £950
