Horses for health

By Country News

A workshop to learn more about the physical, mental and emotional health benefits of spending time with horses will be held at Euroa on June 30.

Facilitated by equestrian coach Sally Francis, who was awarded an OAM in the Queen’s Birthday honours, the June 30 workshop will follow on from a similar workshop held in May.

The May workshop involved an introduction to hippotherapy and equine-facilitated learning as well as practical demonstrations, with the upcoming event set to build on the skills participants learnt on that day.

However, those who could not attend the previous workshop will not be disadvantaged.
