intouch equestrian CIC is a not-for-profit community interest company which has been set up to provide Equine Experiential Learning for children, young people and adults.
Equine Experiential Learning - Better than Therapy?
As more and more research proves the value of Animal Therapy and a connection to nature and the outdoors, learning through the experience of being with horses offers children, young people and adults the opportunity to develop life skills in a new and exciting way.
Intouch equestrian is a Community Interest Company offering this facility in Richhill, Co Armagh.
The horses at intouch equestrian are experienced teachers, and facilitator Lesley Harvey has had 5 years experience in introducing them to the smallest or most nervous client. Working extensively with disadvantaged young people, those with autism, depression and addiction, over time the horses teach confidence, communication skills and compassion, as well as offering hope, enjoyment and mindfulness.
It is not necessary to have experience of horses, and riding is not involved, so EEL is suitable for everyone. The aim at intouch equestrian is to facilitate the development of essential practical and emotional skills by harnessing the power of horses to reflect and influence human potential.
As well as EEL we offer lead rein lessons for
children from 4 - 7 years with individual tuition,
and private or small group (2 / 3) lessons for
older children, teens and adults.
All lessons include horse care and ground work as well as riding.
Our aim is to build confidence, communication skills and compassion as well as Classical riding skills.
We have monthly unmounted rallies and
'Own a Pony' days allow you to look after
a pony for the whole day.
We are happy to teach adult beginners and those needing to build
confidence as well as more advanced flatwork and jumping lessons
on your own horse or ours.
Developing good groundwork skills will enable you to improve your
relationship with your horse on the ground and in the saddle.
