Stay Safe Natural Horsemanship for Young Learners
This is a new project for young people with disabilities giving them the opportunity to learn from the ponies. There is a special emphasis on teaching ground skills and developing an understanding of communication between horse and human. From experience, we have observed that all young people with disabilities such as Autism, Selective Mutism, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression and Learning Difficulties, are able to grasp simple ground skill techniques. We are not a riding school, however young people are taught how to ride using a halter and bareback pad.
Art at New Life Horse Care Sanctuary
All projects here, challenge society's perception that the only way to communicate is verbally. All learners are given the opportunity to express themselves through art whether it's drawing, painting, creative writing or sculpture. Currently the Whisper's Song artwork created by six learners with special needs is on display in a local church. There are plans underway to extend the art practice at New Life Horse Care Sanctuary.
