What is TheHorseCourse?
By Harriet Laurie, founder/CEO of the facility
TheHorseCourse works when talk therapies or behaviour programmes are not helping - especially for young people struggling with trauma and anxiety.
We take them into an intensive 5 day programme, working with highly trained horses and with one-to-one support from an expert facilitator. They think they are learning to be "horse whisperers" and they are!
But behind the fun of running and jumping with horses, getting them kicking balls and playing with the youngsters at liberty… the kids have to master key skills such as
Calmness Focus Communication Planning
They have to become great observers and leaders and they usually have to slow down!
We know that the work we do is incredibly effective, with over 70% of our young people improving their attendance at school, reducing problem behaviours like self harm or explosive outbursts and reporting better relationships with family, friends and professionals -- all great indicators that their lives are getting on track.
