Hello & Welcome to Equine Partners!

Founded in 2010, Equine Partners was dreamt up and developed by Jo Marshall & Fran Hibberd.  


Through both their work and personal lives,  Fran & Jo became aware that a new way to support families and individuals was needed, especially for those who traditional 'talking' therapy doesn't feel right.


Like many of you,  Jo & Fran are aware of how sensitive horses are and how they can act as a mirror for our human emotions as well as being great teachers! 

Combining this with their experience in family work, horsemanship skills, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Training and mental health training,  Jo and Fran have developed a unique way of working that is relaxing for the participants, effective, imaginative and fun! 

They now have a fantastic team of staff, volunteers and horses (and cat!) who have helped them make this vision a reality.

A note from them

Over the years we have help 100's of families and individuals make

positive changes in their lives and we are honoured to be a part of

their journeys.  

Equine Partners simply could not run without our team of amazing

horses. Each and every one of them brings a special something to

the team. Our horses are all different sizes, types and temperaments

and have a range of different skills and life lessons, which are what

gives us the flexibility to do what we do.

We are fortunate to have a small private yard with lovely facilities to enable us to give you the best experience possible all year round, whatever the weather.

Hopefully you will find all the information you need on this website prior to your visit, however if you any questions, comments or confusions please do get in contact.

On behalf of everyone at Equine Partners CIO,  a very warm welcome and we look forward to meeting you soon

Why Horses?

We are often asked 'Why horses?'  The simplest answer is that horses act as a mirror to our emotions and energy making them ideal for helping open our eyes to our behaviours and body language  

Our History

Equine Partners has been running since 2010, starting in a field by the beach with two horses.
