Personal Development through horsemanship

HorseBack UK inspires positive change, encourages confidence and self-esteem, and promotes recovery in an individual. Using horsemanship and outdoor activities, we deliver nationally accredited personal development and wellbeing programmes which offer our participants new coping strategies, life skills and the tools to build resilience.

HorseBack UK is a charity set up to empower service personnel and veterans suffering from life-changing injuries and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and to aid them on their road to recovery.
The success of the first five years of courses for military personnel has allowed HorseBack UK to extend its remit and is now able to focus on the wider community.
Teenagers participate in a 15-day SQA Level 4 Certificate in Personal Development Through Horsemanship.
Over the past three years HorseBack UK has established a unique leadership and team building experience.
In the late summer of 2020 whilst chaos and fear reigned due to the COVID 19 pandemic Jock wanted to help those who had specifically been affected by it within the NHS and Care Home Systems.
We deliver the Team Programme, a twelve week course for young people between the ages of sixteen and twenty-five.

Today, the mood is extremely sombre, as the team head to pay their respects to Dennis’ Troop Commander, Captain J L Perry, No48 Commando Royal Marines, aged just 22, who fell as as he led his men to liberate Langrune Sur Mer, DDay, Normandy, 6th June 1944.

Lest We Forget.

The British military cemetery contains 4,648 graves of Commonwealth soldiers killed during the Second World War and mostly from DDay invasion. 338 of them are unidentified and 500 are of other nationalities, mainly German. Opposite, a phrase in Latin inscribed on the pediment of the memorial to the combatants is a reminder that in 1944 the British who had been vanquished by William the Conqueror had liberated the conqueror’s native land. NOS A GULIELMO VICTI VICTORIS PATRIAM LIBERAVIMUS. This translation reads: "We, once conquered by William, have now set free the Conqueror's native land."
