Newmarket Pony Academy
The Newmarket Pony Academy, at the British Racing School, is a new community project designed to use horses and ponies to positively effect mental health and wellbeing for the children in Newmarket. We are hosting a primary school program, designed to mix equine care with core subjects and team building activities embedded into this diverse learning experience. The courses will build on the curriculum and work on key skills, such as confidence, resilience and overall engagement in learning, through delivering practical and theory lessons to the students. Further to this we will be running breakfast, afterschool and holiday clubs for local young people who have been referred by teachers and social workers as suitable for the project. It is hoped that ongoing engagement with the NPA will give these young people a positive constant. We really believe in the social and mental health benefits from this type of learning and are incredibly excited to empower these young people.
