Equicate offer day services for adults with additional needs from 10am to 3pm during the week.
All activities are target based with the development of the individual as a focus at all times. We are a farm environment and activities are suited to those who enjoy the outdoors. We can have a more farm-oriented focus or one directed more towards horse care.
We do also offer weekly shorter sessions of 45 minutes - these can be one-to-one or we can put groups together. We use the horse as a tool to enable students to identify the language of the horse and in turn improve own communication and team work skills.
We look forward to hearing from you. Get in touch (see email below) for further information or to arrange a visit.
