We are a not for profit organisation -  committed to professional standards and development

Our coaches, drivers and volunteers can support their own continuous professional development (CPD) requirements by joining our workshops and courses.  From First Aid to Safeguarding, understanding disabilities to listening skills, we are committed to building a confident team to support our participants. 

Some are on-line, others can be for small groups face to face, in line with workplace training guidelines. We are seeking funding to subsidise these costs where possible.

First Aid at Work 

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) standard for First Aid at work Qualification is a one day (6 hours) workshop every 3 years.  We  arrange these at our base regularly, because somehow horse people sometimes get injured...

Mental Health First Aid

We want to support coaches to feel able to connect with people experiencing mental health issues.

Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults 

A 3 hour online training that needs to be repeated every 3 years
