Our Story

Warrior Equine CIC is a not-for-profit organisation

We support military veterans, serving personnel and first responders who have experienced severe psychological trauma

 

Warrior Equine was formed and registered in 2019, but the original team have been specialising together in this field, working with military veterans and the Armed Forces community since 2014. 

Having seen the powerful positive effect of working with horses on those suffering from severe psychological trauma, we were inspired to put together a programme of courses and support for the Armed Forces, veterans and emergency services personnel and other groups who have often given so much in the course of their duty.

Since then we have built a network of partners and supporters such as Help for Heroes and the Army Polo Association, delivering highly successful courses for a large number of military veterans.  In 2017 we developed a partnership with the Armed Forces, entrusting us to work with serving personnel, working directly with the Army Recovery Capability and their network of Personnel Recovery Units for the Army, Navy & RAF wounded, injured and sick.

Warrior Equine offers equine assisted Mental Resilience and Positive Wellbeing courses, adapting to each group’s individual needs, for groups of a minimum 6 and up to 10 attendees. Our aim is to facilitate long term positive changes in mental health, resilience, confidence and self worth, reigniting that zest for life.

As for everyone, Covid has put many of our 2020/21 plans on hold, including a new partnership with The Household Cavalry Foundation and Ascot Racecourse. However, borrowing the Royal Marines mantra of ‘Cheerfulness in Adversity’ we are busy making positive plans for 2021 and beyond, so watch this space!

The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope. You will fill yourself with hope.
