The Shortest Month of Winter

With quite a bit of news

In Feb/Mar 2018 edition of Horsemanship Magazine (issue 106) we talk about our meet up with The Equine Touch practitioners last summer. Equine Therapy practitioners shared good practice within their own discipline and then across the two. Since then several Equine Therapy practitioners went on to study Equine Touch to help their own horses. This was our thank you from Paintedhorse to the amazing body work discipline that is The Equine Touch which has kept our herd healthy and sound; particularly Jac and Epona who are featured in the magazine. Magazine copies are available electronically or hard copies can be posted from the editor.

Welcome to Jo FitzJohn who has joined our extended Therapy Team, Jo will be joining Livvy and Nikki in London this week as they provide Equine Therapy for prisoners on a pre-release programme.

Our youngest ‘Friend of Paintedhorse’

We have started a community volunteer club called ‘Friends of Paintedhorse’ who meet at the yard at 7am Fridays for an hour of work, before having a tea break getting to know each other and then having an hour chill out with the herd.

Welcome to ‘friends’ Alyson, Jilly and Jane

We are also recruiting volunteers to join our team this winter to help us during the working week at either 7-9am or 3-5pm (the latter is changeable as nights get lighter/basic rule of thumb 2 hours before dark). Our winter routine which involves refilling water buckets, hay nets, cleaning feed bowls, mucking out, sweeping up the yard and moving horses. If you are looking to enhance your CV and work for a Community Interest Company, we would love to hear from you. There is scope to remain with us after the herd goes back out on the land.
