Horse Care Course at Silvermere

Our students have been enjoying visits to Silvermere Equestrian Centre in Surrey.

The family-run centre was opened in 2005. The team always welcomes our students with kindness, happiness and enthusiasm.

Students are learning how to take care of a horses, including grooming and leading. After only a few lessons, they are able to name the different colours of horses and a few common breeds.

They have also been learning about the equipment and accessories needed to look after horses.

The course has proved very popular with all the students, who have developed their confidence and are no longer scared to be around the animals. Taking part in a Horse Care Course has also given the group the opportunity to express their emotions in a safe and calm environment.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
