Rachel Medill set up Ride High in 2008 with the vision that we could change children's lives for the better using horses.
From the very start there were key principles that she felt very strongly about, and today these principles underpin everything we do as an organisation:
- We help children on the margins for whom there is often no other help available. The children are struggling with daily life and in many cases are desperately sad
- Ride High is a place of consistency, safety, support, friendship and fun
- We offer a range of activities beyond riding horses to help these children make changes to their skills, confidence and prospects
- We offer a long term programme so that the benefits are sustained and can, in many cases, last a lifetime.
