Foundations UK takes young people out of a stressful city environment to experience the powerful reward of connecting with horses. We use the natural gentleness and intuition of horses as a catalyst to help vulnerable people develop self-knowledge and achieve self confidence.
Countryside Break sessions are:
- Safe interaction with horses
- Fresh air and fun in a beautiful setting
- Guidance and discussion led by experienced facilitators
The natural curiosity and responsiveness of horses helps teach participants the value of no-verbal communication. Through engagin enjoyably with these beautiful creatures, young people learn discipline, concentration and empathy.
At the end of every session, there is an opportunity to reflect on the value of the experience. This includes insights into their own behaviour and feels and sharing empression with the group.
