Helping Hooves Derbyshire C.I.C

An Equine led development centre working with people of all ages who have mental health and wellbeing issues .

We work solely through non ridden horsemanship and handling , building confidence and using equine therapy as a basis to everything we do.

Located on the outskirts of Derby city we enjoy a peaceful rural location with our small herd of four ponies, introducing people to the wonders of building a relationship with the horses and learning about equine behaviour and psychology, whilst building confidences and achievements.


We have recently been accredited with Non Ridden Equine Friendly Status through the NREA, promoting non ridden equines as just as important as their ridden friends. For more information, visit
