Alternative Education Provision

Changing Lives Through Horses is a programme of regular sessions, taking place with qualified and experienced BHS Accredited Professional Coaches.

The programme is suitable for young people, aged 5-25, who are either permanently excluded, at risk of permanent exclusion or who have special education needs or disabilities (SEND) and those who are not in employment, education, or training (NEET). They may also be at risk of becoming socially excluded with income below the poverty line and without the skills to improve their economic situation.

The programme utilises a range of awards and achievements to create a community for development, learning and celebration. The programme awards are structured around promoting the holistic development of all involved and nurturing six life skills for all young people: building relationships, communication, confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and perseverance.

I-Pegasus Activity Club

I-Pegasus Activity Club provides opportunities, freedom, and inspiration to young people with physical or mental disabilities. I-Pegasus Activity Club not only gives the option to ride, but it also teaches interaction, learning, and care for horses and ponies. It is a well-known fact that horses can help people with physical and mental disabilities to develop physical skills, strength, coordination and social skills. Our sessions are tailored to the individual’s needs; the length of the session and whether it is in a private or group session depends entirely on the individual.

Hill House School Equestrian Club

We are delighted to be able to work with Hill House School.  Its great to be able to work with a forward thinking school developing an equine centre of excellence programme to add to their already outstanding sporting provision

 The after-school activities have proved to be very popular, and we will continue to offer these on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday evening from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.

Pupils are encouraged to bring their own riding boots and a riding hat where possible, however, they are available to borrow from Grove House Stables Equestrian Centre each session. All riders must provide their own riding gloves. Riding equipment is also available for purchase on site through GH Country Ltd.

The after-school activities are designed to allow pupils to develop their riding skills. With that in mind, we have split the activities into three pathways: Gold, Silver and Bronze. When booking your child onto an activity, it is imperative that you select the appropriate category dependent on skill level. This is for health and safety reasons and rider progression. Grove House Stables Equestrian Centre staff will monitor skill levels and development. Instructors will constantly assess pupils’ abilities and recommend moving groups where appropriate.

Riders and their families and friends are also able to access a wide range of lessons, activities and events at our sister organisation Grove House Stables LLP.  Hill House Equestrian Club Members are able to access discounts on a range of extra lessons, activities and events.
