Understanding how the brain processes emotions is a key part of our Stable Relationships programme. When a horse is faced by threat their automatic response is red zone - fight/flight/freeze. But humans can develop strategies to keep us in the calm blue zone.

We are 6 today! We have some very exciting news about amazing new venues coming soon! Watch this space for updates!


Our equine work is all about helping young people experience being calm enough to learn, within a class environment. Here are some examples of the great work they produce, when they have learned to manage their brain states, with the help of the horses....


Designing horse paintings in the style of famous artists. Plus we took Bilbo for a walk! Look out next week for the finished paintings!


Horses and poetry today...thanks for the inspiration Telford Equestrian Centre horses!


Today-international women’s day-an all female group had a session about teamwork. Part of the session involved creating a horse collage as a!


Happy Birthday to Stable Relationships! We are officially 5 years old. We celebrated with this amazing cake-thanks Dawnie's Cakes! We would also like to say a huge thanks to Telford Equestrian Centre, who make all our activities possible, and have the best ever horses and ponies (especially Bilbo and Solo and Digby and Lilly and Pepper)!



Today is our 5th birthday and this is a great film to share. Building relationships to inspire learning is our core function, and this film shows the impact relationships have on learning. Ps...birthday pics to follow later!

"When a student knows that you care about them, when they know that you're a human, their academic performance is going to be better." That's the power of relationships.


Looking at the qualities different animals have and the messages they give Bilbo!


Happy valentines day!


Our leaders doing well with some primary children today. They were teaching them how to steer, and creating emotion stories at the same time!


Introducing Lynette! She will sometimes be working at Stable Relationships so look out for her! She loves horses and working creatively with young people, and she has been doing a great job already this term! Welcome to the team Lynette!


Digby at Telford Equestrian Centre helping everyone learn about trust...he offered to hold the blindfolds for us.


Our young leaders were great with their younger students today. The horses were as amazing as ever...thanks Telford Equestrian Centre


Spot the horse in this photo...Snow days are pretty!


Here is some work from a group of students who visited us yesterday. It is always great to see how our work is transferred and used back in school. Thanks to the school for sharing!


It was good to catch up today, with my friend Solo, after his time in the field. Telford Equestrian Centre have the best ponies


Interesting new publication on mental health and behaviour in schools. It is great to see the, much needed, increased focus on this area.


Great to see that the Youth Sport Trust are encouraging the use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium to support Emotional Education for students! Our sessions are an inspiring mix of Physical and Emotional Education, so why not come and meet the horses to see what they can teach your children?


BBC News

It is a little known fact that we also offer group drumming sessions. Drumming has been shown to improve concentration, and memory; and to promote feelings of calm and connection. Get in touch for more details.

This school became a national leader by focusing on a neglected subject (via BBC World Hacks)


Such a pretty place to work on days like today!


Wolf's Wisdom

Wolf's Wisdom has been created as a result of seeing the positive impact animals have on children and young people. Please check out the new page if you would like to learn more!

Unique magical gifts for adults and children alike. Wolf's wisdom gift boxes contain a special mini animal and a magical message from that animal.


Dr. Dan Siegel

A lot of our work is based on these teachings and the horses help us make the teachings really clear, so they can be transferred into school environments to help children maximise their learning potential.

Great read about the importance of learning about the brain and how it can help teachers to better understand how to help their students.


One of our students did this picture a few weeks ago. It is him experiencing feeling calm, on Dolly the horse. I think it is a great picture!


Dr. Dan Siegel

A lot of our work involves teaching these ideas to children, young people and their staff with the experiential help of the amazing horses.

"Instead of waiting until a child is hiding under a table and then trying to talk them through breathing exercises, Morris suggests taking a preventative approach. She recommends teaching children about how their brains work and then creating areas within your classroom where children can go to self-regulate."


ITV News

Hundreds of teenagers battling mental health issues are using a novel method to learn to cope - by working with horses.



Three years since this was shown. We are still going strong as are all the ponies shown in this video! Thanks as ever to Telford Equestrian Centre! Thought id share it again to mark half term and gdpr deadline day!!


Can’t believe this was 3 years ago and we are still going strong. It continues to be a wonderful journey, with lots of fun and learning, for children, young people, ponies and all staff! Huge thanks to Telford Equestrian Centre. 28/04/2018

Horses remember human emotions and respond better to happy people, study finds Horses can read human facial expressions and remember a person’s mood, a study has shown. The animals respond more positively to people they have previously seen smiling and are wary of those they recall frowning, scientists found. The findings build on previous research which suggested horses cou...


Our leadership group did great today. They helped the horses teach children all about emotions. We also had the end of term raffles with the YES (you’re extra special) notes. Happy Easter everyone!


We got some happy feedback today...
Sendco: 'The programme was embraced by the student from the outset and the benefits were tangible from the first session'.
Parent: 'The equine programme had a massive influence on his empathy, social skills and controlling behaviours. I don't know where we would be without this intervention'.
