I came across this in my FB feed and thought about your organisation. Hope you don't mind me copying it to you. I DID NOT KNOW... by Alissa Kelly I did not know a horse could bring people into your life that end up meaning the most to you. I did not know a horse could make the hardest days of your life bearable. I did not know a horse could teach you to put others first. I did not know a horse could remind you time and time again that your gut is always right. I did not know a horse could break your heart. I did not know a horse could pick you up when you have fallen apart. I did not know a horse could teach you to dream again, after you thought it was not possible. I did not know a horse could make you believe in yourself. I did not know a horse could teach responsibility, work ethic, and dedication. I did not know a horse could make you believe in something when no one else does. I did not know a horse could make you learn to forgive and forget. I did not know a horse could humble you faster than you can say humble. I did not know a horse could make you a winner. I did not know a horse could also teach you how to lose gracefully. I did not know a horse could instill patience in you. I did not know a horse could make you listen better. I did not know a horse could give you their heart. I did not know a horse could change your life. I did not know a horse could do all these things... but now I know. ❀️❀️

Today, we look back and celebrate a member of our HorseBack UK family, Georgia, and look at her part in the Coronation Parade! Her journey of overcoming mental health challenges to reach this moment is a story of courage that resonates with us all. We invite you to read about her inspiring experience in our throwback blog post. Its a testament to the supportive community weve built here at HorseBack UK, where every victory is a shared joy. https://horseback.org.uk/blog/happy-coronation-day/ #Community #Resilience #HorseBackUK

❀️ love and miss you all massively

From our foundations first bricks to the arrival of our first horse, HorseBack UKs journey began with a vision for healing, recovery and empowerment. Our first equine partner, Nimits, wasnt just any horse; he was a leader, a symbol of our mission to foster resilience and change. Despite his modest height of 14hh, Nimits commands the herd with intelligence and a bold spirit. His unique character exemplifies the transformative role horses play in our community. #HorseBackUK #Nimits #Leadership https://horseback.org.uk/about/our-horses/

Love this little horse so fun to ride πŸ’šx

How wonderful to see and read more about the horses with whom we have worked. My ground horse was the first living thing that got me talking about my past, after 26 years of my silence on those matters. Through those moments - in fact hours - I learnt that there was a path to recovery and re-engagement. It was life saving, and life changing. Wonderful.

Beautiful Nimitz ❀️

HorseBack UK was sent from the gods. The horses,staff and location are heaven on earth. I had the greatest pleasure to be part of this amazing charity for thirteen years. I have seen so many broken people fixed by our friend the horse.

That moment when you hear a group perform for the first time in public and you realise they really can play.

Our Youth Development crew gave us a rousing grand finale to their twelve week course. All our hats are off. Just magnificent.

Throwback to the roots of HorseBack UK with the laying of our first bricks and the arrival of Nimits, our first horse and herd leader. More than his stature, it's his sharp wit and assertive demeanour that set Nimits apart. His role in our herd, mirrors the journey of growth and empowerment we offer at HorseBack UK. #HorseBackUK #Nimits #HerdLeader

 HBUK proudly introduces

'Even the Toughest Fall - Trail to Wellness.'

We are unveiling a story of transformation. The silent crisis of men’s mental health finds a voice at HBUK. It all began with a gathering, a moment shared between former military friends Jock and Emma. 

β€œThis is what men should do when they get back from war,” 

This was the statement declared by a friend during a New Year’s celebration. In the embrace of horses, 1 in 8 men battling mental health issues discover solace and strength. Each image is a testament to moments where silence breaks, and healing unfolds.  #MensMentalHealth #HBUKHealing
