Working with our community
Wight Horse CIC believes that everyone in our community, no matter the age, ability or background should have the opportunity to meet and ride horses
Who do we work with?
All ages, all abilities, all backgrounds.
We work with children and adults with physical limitations, SEND and social and financial difficulties.

How can meeting and working with our horses help?
Horses are the only therapist you can hug. They don’t judge, they need care and require you to focus and gently work with them. The healing nature of horses and the herd is something we believe strongly in, there is something profound that happens when we work alongside horses.
Horses have an immediate impact on the people they meet and work with and as herd animals they are empathetic, reading subtle body language cues and emotion and they are keen to create social bonds.
What People Say
Foster mum to a little boy “He came home buzzing and saying how much he enjoyed himself.
It’s an experience that he’s never had before, and one he is pleased to have had. He has asked to come again which is not something we hear often from him”
Grandma to 2 little girls “. They loved every minute of it and could not stop talking about it on the journey home and over dinner and bedtime. Two very happy girls!”
