We were very luck to be able to receive some lottery funding, and we could provide a 6 week equine therapy course to a group of 12 - 16 year olds. These were all children and young people who have faced many difficulties and were either in care or looked after by the local authority. We ran the course for 6 weeks in March 2019, and we had up to 10 young people who all engaged well and were able to ride the horses, saddle them, muck and skip out.
We are still looking for funding for our next program, we have a Just Giving page and we are trying to gain some funds so we can provide more opportunities for the children and young people in the North West.
We also need to raise funds for a new (or second hand) mini bus, so that we can ensure that we have the transport for the children and young people that we support.
