Therapy sessions are located 12 mins outside of Newbury town centre and take place outside within nature/open fields where a small herd of horses live and are free to roam. Therapy takes place with the horses acting as facilitators offering the ability to mirror and sense clients emotions as well as a sense of genuine emotional support.
Sessions are tailored to individual clients needs. (No ridden work is undertaken and no previous experience of horses is required)
