Stable Life provides a safe, nurturing and learning experience using the horse and its environment to help young people reach their full potential, and become healthier and happier with aspirations and dreams.
For most young people growing up is a fairly smooth and natural process but for others this couldn't be further from reality. Stable Life supports vulnerable young people, aged 10-18 years, on a referral basis.
These young people are generally experiencing social, emotional and/or behavioural issues. A young person's circumstances and related behaviour can often push them to feel isolated or excluded from their school and community. This can lead to anti-social and risk taking behaviour, substance abuse, mistrust of adults and failure to reach their full potential.
Stable Life helps young people to break the cycle of damaging behaviour or feelings of helplessness. They offer vulnerable youngsters a proven and trusted medium which encourages self reflection and promotes resilience. Confidence and motivation can flourish accompanied by an increase in communication and anger management skills.
The work is based on a model of Equine Assisted Learning developed into a person-centred package using the horse and its environment as a tool and learning medium to engage with the young person.
