Horsemanship

The healing power of horses is well documented. Working with, or just spending time with, Beckside's small herd can replace anger, low self esteem and anxiety with feelings of self confidence and self worth.

Care farmers take part in the daily routine of caring for our small herd of horses and ponies. Natural horsemanship is practiced which teaches care farmers how to communicate with horses without force or fear.

Typical activities
Feeding and watering, grooming and handling, paddock maintenance, health checks, routine worming, natural horsemanship skills and first aid and medication.
