Help from a Horse
The Horse Course
The group will use the funding to expand its project supporting adults and young people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. They will work with specially trained horses and learn new self-control skills, like staying calm and focussed, to gain their trust. This will help people unable to progress through talk-based treatment find the self-belief to start their journey to recovery. A club will also be set up for people to help out with feeding and grooming in return for horsemanship lessons.
Funding requested: £48,500
