BHS – Changing Lives Through Horses
The British Horse Society’s (BHS) new programme, Changing Lives through Horses has been designed to help improve the lives of young disengaged people, using horses as the inspiration for change.
The equestrian environment provides young people with structure and a sense of responsibility.
Horses can help young people connect with society and improve their wellbeing. Key skills are developed by the individual that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
The Changing Lives through Horses programme is operated through the selected BHS approved riding centres across the UK. Each centre has trained coaches teaching like skills with horses to make it engaging. The skills young people learn can inspire their transition into education, training and employment.
Changing lives through horses is working in partnership with secondary schools and youth organisations nationwide.
