Application Process

Self Referral

If you are interested in coming to Horses Helping People, please email us to discuss how we can help you.  It is fine for a relative or support worker to email on your behalf.

We will contact you to work out the best type of session for you, and let you know availability. We will then give you an application form to fill in, and where appropriate, a form for a health professional to fill in.

You will then be able to start as soon as there is a vacancy.

Schools and Organisations.

Please email to tell us about your organisation, we will then contact you to work together to achieve the best session format for your participants' needs.


There is a charge for our services. This can be paid privately if you can afford, or by Social Services if you are eligible for direct payments. If you are on a low income we sometimes have sponsored places available.

We are happy to work with schools and organisations on limited budgets to find extra funding.


You will need to be able to get to our stables, as there is no public transport nearby. There are some community transport schemes available – ask us for details.

Please Note

To keep our horses and visitors safe, we do not accept participants with a history of violence towards people or animals, or with a history of arson. 

Some participants with additional needs will need to be accompanied by a support person - each casde is individually assessed.
