Changing Lives through Horses

Through Changing Lives through Horses (CLtH), we reconnect young people to communities through the magic of horses, allowing them to rekindle the desire to continue within education and training, while simultaneously gaining the tools required to support themselves into a career pathway of their choice.

This is an alternative education programme within an equine setting of British Horse Society approved centres – with qualified and experienced BHS Accredited Professional Coaches.

The programme is suitable for young people, aged 5-25, who have special needs and may be either permanently excluded, or at risk of exclusion in its widest sense, and those who are not in employment, education, or training (NEET). They may also be at risk of becoming socially excluded with income below the poverty line and without the skills to improve their economic situation.

The CLtH programme uses a range of awards and achievements linked to the National Curriculum at KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4 – but focused and structured towards promoting holistic development and nurturing six life skills: building relationships, communication, confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and perseverance.
