Horses, Nature
& Mental Well-being

Equus Solutions aims to give adults, children and young people opportunities to practice healthy life skills in a physically and emotionally safe environment, and to give them the confidence to take those skills back into their life.

We have excellent facilities at Equus for both the riding school and equine assisted therapies including a brand new state of the art indoor riding arena with viewing area, stables, an outdoor riding arena, showers with changing areas and a cafe with a good choice of meals, snacks and drinks. We have excellent disabled access and facilities. We are also very pet and children friendly.

What is Equine Assisted Psychotherapy?

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is a highly successful treatment in which clients interact with horses as a tool for emotional growth and learning. 

Ground based, with no ridden element, EAP incorporates horses experientially for emotional growth and learning. This means that participants learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then processing thoughts, belief systems, attitudes, patterns and emotions behind those behaviors.
