Through their network of member groups, the charity is at work in every corner of the UK, in our cities and remote rural areas, bringing the therapy, achievement and fun of horses to as many people as they can.

They are a charity and can only carry out life-changing activities thanks to the generosity of donors, the dedication of volunteers and the good nature of their fantastic horses.
