Friends of Paintedhorse
If you would like to support our work you could become a ‘friend of paintedhorse’. For a monthly donation of £20 a month, you could help provide low cost equine therapy for those in the local community. As a thank you for your support we invite you to our bi-annual ‘friends of Paintedhorse’ open days so you can spend time with the herd. Each open day there will be a variety of different therapies you can try if you wish and there will be refreshments available.
Join the Herd Days
By popular demand, we now offer an opportunity for those who ‘just like spending time in the company of horses’, ‘sitting in nature’ and ‘just connecting to what is important’ on various dates in each month. This time is therapeutic, but it is not a private therapy session which are facilitated by practitioners for individuals or groups. For £30 you can spend up to 2 hours in nature with horses and ponies just being part of their herd. You are welcome to bring a blanket or borrow one of our camping chairs to sit down and relax just as you are or bring a book – you could even read one to the horses. The little Dartmoors may get a little curious so things could get a little ‘interactive’ but that is all part of the herd experience and there is always staff around for those who are more nervous.
For £40, you can choose a 30 min therapy session (visit Juniper Therapies for more details) and then spend the rest of the time in the field with the horses as above.
