Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship

NEWS:  Fundraiser; Sunday 26th July - Saturday 1st August 2015
Sirona is a Community Interest Company and would not be able to operate without funding and donations. One of our largest costs is the maintenance of our horses, our annual insurance alone is over £2000.

This year, 'Team Chinkwell', the Dartmoor Pony driving team owned by Trish Luxton is undertaking a sponsored carriage drive following the route of the Two Moors way to help raise funds for us.
Following on from their successful John O'Groats to Lands End Pony Carriage Drive in 2012 for the Teenage Cancer Trust which raised £23,000, Trisha and Karl are now taking on this challenge for Sirona with the target of £10,000.
Follow them on our Facebook page and/or check out the Two Moors Way route here.

Therapeutic Horsemanship

Therapeutic Horsemanship is one of a range of activities where people learn about themselves, others and the world through their interaction with horses. Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL) are commonly associated interventions
A relationship based on trust, leadership and tranquility facilitates rewarding horse-human interaction. The approach taken by Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship can be described as ‘natural horsemanship’ as both horse and person are simultaneously learner and teacher. The benefits of horse-human interaction are particularly felt by people for whom self-esteem, trust and confidence has posed challenges
