Sirona provides therapeutic horsemanship and equine assisted therapy to young people and adults with additional support needs. This can include mental health, learning disability, young offenders, young carers, young people with emotional/behavioural difficulties and with those educational challenges.
Through horse based activities participants learn about horse behaviour/ psychology and horse management. This can bring increased levels of self-awareness through learning how to control and manage their own behaviours in order to have positive relationships with the horses. Therapeutic horsemanship also leads to gains in self confidence and self esteem together with learning new skills leading to increased opportunities in education and training.
Educational opportunities can be incorporated in sessions such as horse based projects and numeracy and literacy. NVQ level 1 in horse care is now offered in partnership with Duchy College. Physical health and mental health benefits are provided by working with horses in the natural environment.
