A group of 8 children have been lucky enough to receive a horsemanship intervention to support SEMH. The initial funding sought has meant these children have enjoyed learning about horse care and riding. They have quickly recognised the benefits of such activities. All children have represented school brilliantly and showed natural ability to care for animals. We have discussed how our calm approach and the pride we felt at overcoming challenges and emotions can be transferred into school based learning. We also acknowledged how the exercise and shared experience made us feel rejuvenated and part of a team.
