Wisdom of Equus is a registered charity (no: 1175736). We deliver sessions in Equine Assisted education, coaching and wellbeing to adults and children. Our aims are to aid in personal development, education and positive mental health in order for people to lead a more fulfilled life.
We work closely with our community and focus our work on those that are at most need. We run workshops and clubs for children who have experienced bullying to help increase their confidence, resilience and self-esteem. We also offer volunteering opportunities for NEETs groups and are now an ASDAN Registered Centre running courses to enhance employability. We have also just completed a project with NEWMind Blue Light Programme, offering equine-assisted intervention to emergency service workers.
We have been fortunate to have helped people of all ages to overcome personal and mental health problems. These have ranged from low self-esteem and confidence to more difficult problems such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. We have had amazing results working with emergency service workers and hope to continue this in the future if we can secure further funding and better facilities.

No Riding Involved!
All activities and exercises take place on the ground. This means that our education programmes and therapeutic interventions are accessible to all. We work with people of all ages and abilities.
Equine Assisted Education
Outdoor education is based around looking after the horses and other animals, this provides amazing opportunities for learning and development. Our students not only learn how to look after the animals, they also learn about themselves and others. They build confidence, self-esteem, resilience and learn how to be an effective team member and confident leader.
Personal Development and Employability Skills
We are now a registered ASDAN Centre and able to deliver qualifications in Animal Care and Employability along with a range of other programmes targeted at 11-25 year olds. Please contact us for more information.
Equine Assisted Coaching and Self Development
Wisdom of Equus uses the energy, presence and natural appeal of horses to deliver a range of activities and sessions to children and adults in a safe, controlled environment.
Horse have the ability to 'read' and respond to human energy and intention. Their reactions are instant, honest and can change by the moment. This provides immediate feedback to our behaviour and is therefore a great tool to learning and self-development.
We consistently help people of all ages to overcome personal and mental health problems. These range from low self-esteem and confidence to more difficult problems such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. We have well-documented results working with emergency service workers through the Blue Light Programme run by North East Wales MIND.
