Horses are at the heart of the team, our family and everything we do
Each horse has its own individual characteristics that help others to grow in confidence and improve life skills. Simone had a passion for horses from a young age. They have been her greatest teachers and she sees how they can bond with people to change behaviour.

Meet some of our horses
Our horses started life at Tullynewbank Stables teaching children and adults the joy of riding. They have a special place in many of our client’s hearts and will stay there forever.
Like us, horses have their own distinctive look and personality, drawing individuals towards them through a deep connection. They are non-judgemental and will react in a number of ways according to the situation they find themselves in and the energy we project. They are extremely sensitive beings and will pick up emotional cues from us humans even as we try to hide our real feelings.
Bonnie is our oldest pony she has spent her whole life supporting children and steadfastly building their self-confidence.
Fritz is our handsome boy, definitely an eye catcher with a great sense of fun and possibility.

Chance is a very wise lady with beautiful brown eyes. She has a lifetime of experience and a lot to give. She is acutely sensitive to the energy around her and will connect when it feels right
