We are based in a beautiful part of the world and it’s worth staying in the area for a few days and joining us for a short program of EFL (Equine Facilitated Learning). These can be tailored to suit your budget, time restrictions and learning requirements and allow you to fully immerse yourself in personal growth and development.  Clients have found our retreats deeply therapeutic, grounding and calming; always taking away a great deal of self-learning.

We’re located 
between Sheffield and Manchester with good train links to both cities along the Hope Valley line. We are just a 5 minute walk from Edale train station. You can find a list of local accommodation on our page about Edale.
