Horse Therapy Brisbane

Our Mission Statement:

To improve wellbeing in young people through a holistic approach to working with horses.

Did you know we are 100% volunteer run!

H.E.A.R.T is managed and operated by a group of dedicated volunteers including the board, management committee and the community of people that use the services provided.  

 

THE HEART COMMUNITY makes this a special place where people come together to share their love of horse, animals, people and the connection we all share. 

Our community is grounded in

RESPECT, EQUALITY, INCLUSIVENESS, KINDNESS and COMMPASSION.

  

Our values are

horses as partners, education, challenge, understanding, responsibility, achievement, and safety.

H.E.A.R.T is a not-for-profit community-based organisation. Many individuals visit our paddock each month; including clients, families, staff and volunteers, and community visitors.

Join us for a taste of rural life, just 10 km from the Brisbane CBD.

H.E.A.R.T provides:

  • Affordable and inclusive access to horse oriented activities, in order to promote the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of young people of all ages and abilities. This includes a program of health focused Horse Assisted Learning, and skill-based (riding and horsemanship) activities.
  • Supervised volunteer and peer mentoring programs, particularly for young people, to share skills and participate in meaningful activity, working on the land and with animals.

Our Objectives:

  • to instil in people a love and respect for horses;
  • to promote a holistic approach to education about horses and horsemanship
  • to provide horse oriented activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people of all ages and abilities.

H.E.A.R.T owes our success to the ongoing support from our volunteers, families and the greater community. Thanks to you, we have been able to grow from humble beginnings to become the busy organisation we are today.

Our Commitment To The Community

As a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation we are focused on strengthening relationships, supporting families, and improving the wellbeing of children and young people whilst supporting the inclusion of vulnerable people through equine assisted learning and the healing power of the horse.

The management committee of H.E.A.R.T pledges to sponsoring 1 at risk young person per term who could not otherwise access the programs due to financial barriers!
