WE NEED YOUR HELP to raise £11,140. These funds will allow us to welcome 100 front line staff and care workers for a unique day at Tower House Horses. They have worked tirelessly and selflessly to save and protect lives and now it's their turn to feel special and looked after.

YOUR DONATIONS will make it possible to run a series of days specifically designed to help people regain emotional balance following a traumatic period in their lives. 100 NHS staff and care workers will spend a day with our charismatic herd and professional facilitators in a relaxed and calm environment. They will get close to them, soaking up the horses' empathetic way of being and taking some much deserved time to pause and reflect. We guarantee to take their minds off the intensity of their work and send them  home refreshed and rejuvenated.

We're passionate about making a difference to people's lives, but don't take our word for it.

"...a message of thanks for what was the most magical and therapeutic encounter... a gift like no other service I have across in the assistance and rehabilitation of those in despair and distress. You really made an amazing lasting impression." (palliative care doctor, Southampton)

WHY HORSES?  Horses can teach us how to be in the moment and more relaxed. They make mindfulness look easy because that's what they do naturally all the time.  Spending a day with our herd is like a spa day for the mind, right in the heart of the scenic Hampshire Downlands.

ABOUT US. Tower House Horses is an Equine Assisted Learning Centre, where we make it our mission to help people feel better about themselves, to improve their mental health and emotional well being, following a traumatic experience, poor mental health, or a particularly stressful period in their lives. We also offer respite days for young carers, and for therapists and other care workers. The funding for nearly all of our projects comes from charitable donations and grants which cover the cost of programme delivery and caring for our herd.
