Equine Learning @ Priory Court Farm

Equine Learning

Hoofbeat’s Equine Facilitated Learning

Groundwork based sessions for small groups offered at our farm as well as visits out with the ponies to organisations including schools and care homes. 

Equine Learning is groundwork based and shares the element of experimental learning and personal growth where participants are encouraged to observe and interact with the horse and in turn can improve self-confidence, trust and social skills.

A horse will shed light, mirror and give instant feedback on our unconscious behaviours, body language and emotional energy. Horses characters can make them great partners for therapeutic work and can have a calming effect on humans, allowing us to manage our feelings and help us become more centred, reconnected and focused.


The peaceful presence of being with the horses and nature therefore has a positive impact on mental and physical wellbeing.
