The Saddlers are very proud of the British Horse Society Changing Lives Through Horses programme which they support with an annual donation of £20,000.
In the UK, 10.9% of 16-24 year olds aren’t in education, employment or training and 3.5% of all 16-17 year olds.1 1 in 10 children have a diagnosable mental health disorder as do 1 in 5 young adults. 2
Changing Lives through Horses has the potential to reach these people at a critical point in their lives.
Changing Lives through Horses aims to improve the lives of disengaged young people, regardless of their background, and give them the opportunity to develop skills that enable them to return to education and/or employment. The BHS aim to celebrate the powerful impact that horses can have on our society and the unique development of life skills which can help young people for the rest of their lives.
