impacted by trauma
restorative sanctuary for both humans and horses
Life is rarely simple.
Sometimes it feels like there are obstacles and competing demands everywhere we look. It feels like we are just going through the motions every day – barely surviving. Stress and anxiety start taking over.
For some, those feelings are the result of big life stressors like trauma or abuse, for others it’s more of a constant underlying anxiety or feelings of worthlessness or hopelessness.
Regardless of the cause, those feelings are signals that it’s time to make a change, time to prioritise personal growth, time to reach out to find the knowledge, tools and support you need to get back on the road to a balanced life full of hope, heart and healing. It’s time to thrive, not just survive.
The sanctuary is a safe and restorative space to undertake that journey.
Most of the horses and ponies at the sanctuary have also experienced big life stressors in their lives, and they are the perfect teachers.
They don't care about your appearance, background, vulnerability, or past experiences. They simply hold space for you, without judgement, and offer much-needed emotional security and comfort.
Our programs are supervised and run by qualified facilitators – most of whom have also experienced, and healed from, big life experiences.
They have built an amazing culture of kindness and positivity - a space where we support each other, lift each other, trust each other, learn new skills, share our knowledge and get inspired to live a life in service to others.
