All participants are taught how to safely work with horses. For those that have a fear of horses the work can be done behind a fence, or on a lead line with the facilitator.

It is not possible to work with the horses if you have had high quantities of alcohol or caffeine in the last 48 hours and/or you have taken recreational drugs in the last few weeks.
