Equine Learning has been offering therapeutic horsemanship sessions and horse riding in South Warwickshire since 2008. We are based at Wootton Park, in a beautiful 360 acre estate near Henley-in-Arden. We offer horse riding and therapeutic horsemanship to people in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Redditch, Leamington Spa, Henley-in-Arden, Solihull and all the surrounding areas. We work with schools, care providers, Local Authority departments and individuals to offer our inclusive lessons, sessions, camps and educational programmes to mainstream and disabled and disadvantaged adults, children and young people from Warwickshire and across the UK. We are a licensed and insured riding establishment (why is this important?) and an affiliated Pony Club Centre, in addition to being members of HETI (The Federation of Horses in Education and Therapy International) and and an approved centre listed on the Human Equine Interaction Register in the UK. As a community interest company, we focus on providing person centred, positive learning rather than profit. We also take a horse first approach, for more details please see our values page.
Our facilities include a 20m x 40m outdoor riding arena and 60ft covered round pen, both with a waxed fibresand surface. We have 360 acres of off-road riding tracks on site, including woodland trails and beautiful hilltop views.
Our vision is to be a 'Community Equestrian Centre' where anyone can benefit from our therapeutic programmes and mainstream activities. We specialise in working with young people with Autism, however we work with a wide range of people with our horses, including, but not limited to, people with learning difficulties, sensory impairments, emotional & behavioural difficulties, depression, eating disorders, physical impairments, young carers, people with mental health difficulties and excluded young people.
We offer regular weekly sessions to local people and we have accommodation that can be booked for people who live further afield and would like to work with our horses and stay on site. Funded access to our work may be available (subject to availability of funds & means testing) through The Centaurus Trust, registered charity no: 1133212. Please contact us for more details.
We also offer clinics, horsemanship training, riding lessons, teambuilding and leadership days to assist with our sustainability and offer learning opportunities to everyone.
