Welcome To The Way of The Horse

We are a Non-Profit Social Enterprise Supporting our Local Community. 

We are a not for profit social enterprise Equine facilitated learning company that has developed self-help programs for children and adults who have suffered emotional trauma with the assistance of our sentient friend 'The Horse'. The programmes provides a process of learning that can assist people with mental health problems when other conventional medical pathways have failed. The underlying principle is that horses can awaken intuition and unspoken feelings and fears that can be released via simple engagements with horses. We work in the community with young people and adults and visit schools helping young people with our programs. We are also beginning our journey this year working with people in their workplace with our corporate programs.

We rescue non ridden horses as we believe even after a carear in riding they have so much to give and these horses would generally be left or put to sleep. 

We also have some very poorly ponies and foals which we are helping to become well again and will rehome once they are fit and well.  People love to see a poorly animal survive and become well again and it gives people a sense of purpose to be part of that process too.  Please see our rescues and follow their progress on our social media pages

  The Medicine Horse Way  

The Medicine Horse Way programs partner with the wisdom of nature in helping people take a courageous look at the unconscious patterns that limit their ability to thrive in life. Dina Shale, founder of the Way of the Horse is the only Medicine Horse Way Instructor in the UK. 

  The Rescue Ranch

We work with a local organisation that rescues abandoned and tethered and neglected ponies and horses.  We feel it is really lovely to see any animal be given a second chance.  People also want to help and it gives people with mental health issues a sense of purpose to be part of this process.  Watch on our social media pages for their updated progress.
