The Enterprise Centre is a specialist Alternative Education that benefits from it’s unique outdoor education and environment, which is situated in the heart of the Kirklees Valley Nature Reserve. The staff at The Enterprise Centre are fully qualified teachers and we specialise in equine assisted learning, learning with horses and equine therapy for young people who are struggling in mainstream school, SEND, SEMH and any other mental health issues.

We work with both primary and secondary schools in the area providing 1 to 1 or 1 to 3 tailored learning programmes. We also provide facilitated small group sessions. We specialise in working with SEND and SEMH young people aged 9+ using our equine assisted learning and we have great results when learning with horses.

Equine therapy, also known as equine-assisted therapy (EAT), is a method that includes equine activities or an equine environment to promote physical, occupational, and emotional growth in persons with mental or behaviour imbalances.

Since horses have similar behaviours to humans, such as social and responsive behaviours, it is easy for individuals to create a connection with the horse. This results in allowing individuals to grow by establishing trust, communicating effectively, managing emotional responses, setting and maintaining safe and appropriate behaviour patterns, developing leadership skills and growing confidence.

See below the many exciting opportunities we have to offer young people.
