"We use horses as a tool to engage with young people, and help build self-confidence, self-esteem and teach them life skills that they can transfer to their lives, and to give them dreams and aspirations for the future.
"Horses are very sociable animals and mirror our behaviour, you can learn so much from a horse. They can be stubborn and you have to give them a lot of patience and time.
"They can also be very comforting for some young people, they can get a cuddle, and horses accept young people for who they are, no matter what their background is."
