HorseBack UK has been created to provide a safe, secure environment to aid those serving or who have served in the UK armed forces, many of whom have suffered physical injury and/or acute stress as a result of their commitment to their country.
By bringing those at different stages of their recovery pathway together and by using a holistic approach to psychological, physical and social rehabilitation, HorseBack UK aims to restore self respect and inspire individuals to fulfil their potential as part of a community.
"Dear HorseBack, thanks to you and of course the horses, my husband had his first nights decent sleep in years. For a man who hears the screams of the dying constantly in his head and doesn’t like himself as a person most of the time that is some achievement. The effects have lasted longer than I expected too, we had a few moments before he left when he would normally have gone into the darkness but much to my surprise and delight he was very chilled and relaxed. Long may it continue for both our sakes! What you have given me is hope, hope that I’ll get some of my old husband back, hope that he’ll find some peace and most of all hope that we can have a future together".
