About Centred Horseplay

Centred Horseplay is an independent charity based near Cirencester, we help troubled people of all ages 'when talking isn't working' and we are the approved Gloucestershire Hub for world renowned Dorset based charity TheHorseCourse whose work is leading the equine-assisted field in terms of outcome evidence.

We work with horses using an innovative and well-evidenced programme - multiple universities have done studies of our work. Participants are referred by social services, NHS mental health, schools, offender services and other specialist agencies. People typically come to us with 5 or more problems including (but not exclusively): not attending school, relationship difficulties, offending, drug & alcohol misuse, eating disorders, mental health problems, living in care or leaving care, domestic violence, ADHD, ASD, self-harm, bullying, aggression, anger, being bullied. Participants have an amazing week-long experience with high level horses, training as 'horse whisperers' to learn how to be truly calm, focused and clear in their communication. We use an action based learning process and the magic of horses to get people to engage, we are then able to teach them to become confident and effective learners in the horsemanship context. They learn first with a horse, then one another how to read others and take care of their needs. This empathy in action creates more positive relationships with friends, families and the professionals who are trying to help and support them.

What we do works, we know that 8 out 10 people we work with WILL do better in school and in relationships, no one should be considered beyond reach just because they don’t want to talk.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
