Equine Activities - a Veterans' Wellbeing Program

We at Equus Ferus are excited to have recently been awarded a grant from the Positive Pathways Programme from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund to offer a project for Veterans that centers around the natural horsepersonship activities.

The project will deliver 12 days of outdoors nature-based equine facilitated wellbeing activities for veterans who want support to improve their mental health. Activities are tailored to ensure inclusivity and diversity, and include: working with horses, driving a horse and cart, learning to ride, plus six online group wellbeing sessions.

The dates on which the in-person outdoor activities will take place are:

  • May: 14th, 15th & 16th
  • July: 2nd, 3rd & 4th
  • August: 6th, 7th & 8th
  • September: 17th, 18th & 19th

Part-funding from the National Lottery
