Rescue horse laying down with trainer

We are an equine rehabilitation centre, officially registered as a charity in Spain. We train using positive reinforcement. In other words, we wave carrots not sticks!

Our mission is to demonstrate best practice for the emotional rehabilitation of rescued horses, through education. We provide support for registered equine charities in the use of positive reinforcement training for equines.  We also support horse owners who have behavioural problems with their horses.

Behavioural Rehabilitation

Horse rehab - Barefoot trimming in protective contact

Our rehab approach creates wonderful results. Traumatised horses become trusting, happy and interested in life again.

 

Our starting point is always to be with the horse where the horse is.  At the beginning we like to leave them to settle in with the herd without our interference. The herd are the greatest healers and it's a joy to watch new horses become part of the herd and form friendships.


From there, we treat each horse as an individual as we start to interact with them. Our positive, gentle, approach takes time but is very effective in creating trusting and safe horses.

Support for Equine Rescue Charities

Horse charity staff training course

We train charity staff in modern training techniques, which also uses positive reinforcement. Have a look at our process and you’ll understand how we work with traumatised horses to help them to become easy to handle and, if appropriate, safe to ride. 

 

We provide education and support both online and hands-on at our Centre. We also provide post-adoption support for people who adopt horses, in partnership with charities.

We are currently creating recognised qualifications for charity staff in using positive reinforcement for rehabilitation.

Support for Horse Owners

If you are struggling with behaviour problems with your horse, we can help!  Have a look at our approach and you’ll understand how we work with horses to help them to become easy to handle and, if appropriate, safe to ride. 

 

We usually provide online support initially, working with you to create a plan of action. This is a FREE service. From there, you can choose to go on to online coaching . 

We also offer courses and individual training at our Centre. Hands on experience with our horses is a fast-track way to learn the skills you need to help your own horse.

Please Support Us

Training a mule using positive reinforcement

 As you can see, we have big ambitions to bring the best in equine emotional rehabilitation into the world. 

We need all the help we can get to reach out to equine charities and support them to base their rehabilitation on positive reinforcement. Staff need training and adopters need help and support too. We want to create scholarships for charity staff to learn with us and, soon, to gain qualifications which are recognised throughout the sector.

 

Please give us what you can to support us. We are hugely grateful for any donation at all. However, monthly donations help to put our finances on a secure footing and make future planning easier. Whatever you give, you will be part of a great group of people who want to change the world for horses.

Thank you, 

Claire and Rachel

Making a Will

Leaving a Will is important to ensure, not only that any dependants are cared for, but also to ensure the estate is passed on in accordance with the deceased's wishes. A Will can also include a gift to a charity or charities of your choice.
