WHO ARE HORSES 4 LIFE?
Welcome to Stonehill Stables, your haven for equine-assisted therapy near the charming town of Chudleigh, nestled between Haldon Hills and wild Dartmoor. We offer a serene setting for therapeutic horsemanship, with friendly ponies and experienced professionals welcoming individuals and groups alike.
Our equine therapy involves a team of gentle ponies and trained mental health helpers. We understand that traditional environments like classrooms may not be the easiest places to share worries. Our calming pony pals offer a safe space to explore and navigate through tough times and worries.
Stonehill Stables equine-assisted learning programmes focus on boosting happiness by teaching valuable skills with the help of our ponies. In a typical equine therapy session, activities range from grooming our ponies, feeding them their favourite snacks, petting them, to even tidying their stables. Participants also get the chance to lead the horses around, engage in pony training in our round pen, and enjoy fun-filled pony agility games.
Each equine therapy activity is designed to enhance emotional management, improve confidence, foster a sense of self-worth, teach about setting boundaries, and promote independence and social connections.
If school bullying has you seeking a supportive environment, Stonehill Stables offers the perfect refuge with our unique, pony-powered therapy. Join us for equine-assisted therapy and make friends with our four-legged pals, providing a path to wellbeing and resilience.
