Amazed by this training course (Equine Facilitated Learning) we’ve just passed. Very professional and well conducted to make each student skilled and capable to help people by counting on the horses help. Indeed! there is a huge difference when you can learn from someone very knowledgeable. What it is not mentioned is the huge amount of lives this course is going to help thanks to the skills that the students acquire.

Well! What can I say about this place? I went on an EFL course taking all of my baggage with me, trust me I have a lot!! I was greeted with so much love and support from both human and equine that I came away a very different person indeed. I cannot praise them enough and cannot recommend them highly enough either! The horses are amazingly happy and relaxed, always ready to help the needy and sometimes when the needy don’t even know they are needy!! I am not a people person but I would happily spend the rest of my life in the company of the Horsehaven crew because there is absolutely no judgement or pressure, when I was ready, they were waiting with kindness and love. I will be going back!!

Beautifully trained horses and professional tutors.
Lots of individual attention and plenty of practical assessments. Treated to a scrummy lunch everyday. I have taken many skills away with me and can now have the confidence to apply them. Well recommended.

Nickie Porter

Had an absolutely amazing experience at horse haven uk! Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming! The EFL diploma taught here is in such great detail and with enough hands on practice! I would highly recommend them!

Genuine and knowledgeable trainers who get the most out of their students. The horses are kept naturally and treated with kindness and respect. Excellent experience
