HorseWorld has been providing services to rescue and rehabilitate horses, donkeys and mules for more than 70 years. Since 2007 we have been running a successful Discovery programme providing Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) support to young people who are struggling in mainstream school. In the past year we have begun to measure the impact of our charitable activities, which results from capturing the outputs and outcomes of our day to day work.
In this section you will find the details of our 2022 activities, and testimonials from the young people, parents and referrers involved in our discovery programme. In 2021 we undertook an external evaluation of our Family Fund initiative, and you will see the outcome of this research which demonstrates significant benefits from a relatively small sample size. Anyone who has the opportunity to spend time with an equine friend, knows the positive impact this can have, but at HorseWorld we are determined to provide an increasing amount of credible evidence to support our impact.
Over the next few years as we implement our new 5-year strategy, we will report more details of our impact, to enable our supporters to better understand the true value of our life changing work.
