Welcome to HALO
The Horse Assisted Learning Organisation Ltd, better known as HALO was founded by Christine Fairweather and friends and it is the collaborative nature of the work that takes place with Christine, the horses, and the HALO Associates and friends that makes the HALO model of work unique. We currently offer the following at our North Devon headquarters.
HALO provide an experience that promotes feelings of wellbeing, calmness, confidence and happiness. HALO horses will invite you into their world and from there will help you find your own answers to questions in any area of your life. Growth, healing and change happen by doing and feeling, and you leave feeling validated and empowered. Enjoy good food and leave with a gift bag and certificate of participation after a day you will never forget.
Therapists CPD Days

Horse Assisted Learning is of benefit to all client groups, perhaps particularly those who appear ‘stuck’, have communications difficulties, or are otherwise struggling to engage with talking therapies. By attending a Therapists CPD Day at HALO you will not only learn how Horse Assisted Therapy can benefit you clients, and how you could deliver it, you can also experience the benefits yourself in this day of discovery.
