Suzanne Adamthwaite and Denise Sadlier, are both Eagala trained along with the horses, they formed as a facilitating team in 2018. Recently established they are now registered with Companies House as a Community Interest Company (C.I.C).
However there is a wealth of practical experience on offer to clients. CANter is based at ‘The Stables’ set in an idyllic remote village between Luton, Bedford and Hitchin which makes the venue easily accessible. Whilst learning and processing emotional challenges, this venue allows our clients a real connection with nature.
CANter facilitates a bespoke programme, building confidence, self-esteem, growth and development, whilst facing challenges or change. Above all it delivers life-changing outcomes.
There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of man
The CANter programme is a distinctive framework which allows the client to learn and grow from the horse- human relationship. The horses work as metaphors, helping the client to find their own solutions to the challenges of change.
Our human facilitators are certified in the EAGALA model, which includes a registered mental health professional and an equine specialist, ensuring the highest level of care. Riding skills are not required; clients only work with the horses on the ground.
The programmes that we run include topics such as respect, responsibility, relationships, boundaries, trust, team building, leadership, communication, choices and consequences to name but a few!
Working with schools, charities and other bodies we have so far focused on women and children. However, the Eagala model enables us to deliver amazing results with the military, various businesses and industry.
