What Our Clients Have to Say


`I immensely enjoy Small Strides because it has taught me so many simple yet effective ways of handling the horses there. I have also built up a great bond with the horses, thanks to the wonderful guidance of Jenny, who is in charge. So yes, I highly recommend Small Strides if you are so interested in being with horses. '

Thanks jenny! "

" Excellent. The horses are all very friendly and patient. Jenny is very friendly and accommodating to all. I look forward to my sessions every fortnight and they have had a big impact on my mental health and confidence. I highly recommend small strides to everyone! "

" My son was scared of horses but now he won't leave them a alone only after 4 sessions. He is so confident, he loves going and never wants to leave. He has built up a lot of trust with jenny he thinks a lot of her. He is looking forward to many more sessions"

"Small Strides does amazing work with vulnerable people and I think anyone who goes there can't help but feel better after being there. I always turned up stressed but felt so much calmer after spending time with these peaceful, beautiful animals in such tranquil surroundings. You learn so much about horses, animals in general and yourself as well"

"The difference in my daughters behaviour after a session with Jenny is amazing. She loves her time at Small Strides and I love watching her become totally calm and relaxed. I wish she could do it every day."

Small Strides is a wonderful horsey haven. I have been a volunteer at the yard for a few months and have found my time there invaluable to my mental and physical health. The calming effect of the tranquil atmosphere at Small Strides is instantly noticeable and every visit makes my day. Jenny and all her team are fantastic people and everyone truly cares for the four gorgeous horses. I'm so glad I found it!

Small Strides is an amazing facility that provides amazing support. I started attending sessions at Small Strides when I was struggling to attend school and extremely anxious. I attended sessions for around 2 years and also volunteered around my sessions. By the end of my sessions I was a completely different person thanks to Jen and the horses. During my time I gained many new skills including my level 1 reiki. I wouldn't be where I am today without the support i received at Small Strides.

Small Strides and Jenny have literally been a life line to my son. At a time when his school placement had completely broken down and he was refusing to engage with traditional mental health therapy Jenny worked her magic and gave me back my happy child! It continues to be his happy place, Smokey, Jenny and Pixie help him work through difficult thoughts and emotions in a safe caring environment.

My 7 year old son has just completed a 6 week horse care course at Small Strides.He went from not wanting to leave the house to being able to stay for the entire session without my support. It was a gradual process for my son: popping back to the car for the first three weeks every 10 minutes, 20 minutes and then a couple of times before he was comfortable enough to join in for the whole session. He’s grown in confidence. Jenny and Vikki have been so supportive and patient with my son, and he has responded so well to this.

Thank you!

It was a great experience to take part in the EFT introductory course. Fantastic to feel first hand how effective EFT is and the way it can support emotional regulation for all ages.Jenny shared her in depth knowledge and expertise in a supportive, patient and careful way that allowed the basics of EFT to be taught in a safe environment . Thank you
