Saddle Up! Ranch
Saddle Up ! Ranch is a Centre for Horsemanship which encourages and promotes kind and practical Western horsemanship, and works within the local councils and community projects opening up opportunites for adults and children to experience hands-on work with these amazing and patient animals.
Horses are known the world over for their therapeutic effects, alleviating stress; just being with them in the open air takes you far away from everyday worries.
Saddle Up Ranch ! provides opportunities for people from all walks of life.
Studies prove that being around animals, interacting with and brushing them has a physiological effect on the human body, reducing heart rate and stimulating the immune system!
Horses as therapy is up and coming as an intellectual way to help people recover from trauma, PTSD, anxiety, mental health issues, addiction and autism and also for young people to learn about leadership, responsibility and confidence through body awareness and mindfulness.
All our volunteers are non-paid and visits to Saddle Up ! Ranch are by appointment only.
