Horses are quick to react to perceived danger but where no threat exists, go ‘back to grazing’. We use the same principle focus on helping people to develop a less reactive approach to situations and how to connect with others to create and maintain better relationship.
It’s about life skills, coping mechanisms, decision making and creating a brighter future. Participants tell us that they feel much more hopeful and positive following their time with the horses.
We also offer a free 6-week online follow up on-line course for veterans to help with establishing new, constructive practices.
How to Attend
We aim to help as many people in the Armed Forces community as possible. We support service personnel and veterans of all ages, whether difficulties have arisen during time in the Armed Forces or many years later.
Since our 2 day Back to Grazing courses are group sessions, we prefer individuals to come via a referring body. This can be Inspire Wellbeing, Combat Stress, Help for Heroes, NHS or other recognised military associations. If you are unsure, please contact June who will explain what is involved in our Back to Grazing workshops and provide you with details of the relevant organisations for referral.
Don’t worry – it’s easy!
