Improving the lives of children

Horse Power

Horse Power is about building skills of confidence, empathy and understanding through equine assisted learning. Using trained therapy horses and under the watchful eye of certified equine assisted learning instructors from Town and Country Equestrain and horses from Southlands Stables, children are provided with the unique experience to develop horse care skills.

Caring for a horse helps build social, emotional and educational skills through the trusting and respectful interactions with a horse. It helps to elevate a child's self-worth and confidence in themselves. It develops skills of understanding and empathy by learning to to read, understand and respond to the needs of the horse.
