Parkfield Equine Solutions

When talking isn't working

What We Offer

TheHorseCourse ReStart – Typically 10 hours of 1:1 work with a facilitator, over 5 consecutive days.

Participants are by referral only, from Schools & PRUs, Social Services, NHS Mental Health Services, Family Services and other specialist agencies.

The Horse Course, Equine assisted therapy

Our participants have serious problems such as ADHD, ASD, self harming, bullying, aggression, victims of bullying or abuse, risk taking behaviour, eating disorders, domestic violence, mental health problems, social isolation/not attending school.  They are referred because they are ‘stuck’ or disengaged from talk-based support.

We teach, rehearse and repeat key resilience skills in an intensive and challenging, but fun, 5 day programme with feedback in-the-moment from specially trained horses and
1-to-1 facilitator support.

Lighter Touch options

In addition to the intensive ReStart we offer Lighter Touch options such as top ups, tailored sessions and group work – different ways to help people at a lower level of need or to provide longer term support after a ReStart course.
