Riding Together – Solidarity on Horseback’s main goal is to create, implement and disseminate a model for a social enterprise which is dedicated to horse-mediated inclusion at a European level. This model can be used to replicate such social enterprises in other local contexts across the World. The model is summarized in the good practices guide created by the partnership*, which includes:
1) A sustainable social enterprise (or business) model for a riding centre dedicated to horse-mediated inclusion;
2) A training framework that defines the knowledge, skills and competencies that are essential within a team who is involved in the creation of such a riding centre;
3) The results of a scientific research about the effects of horse-mediated activities on well-being and social inclusion of children at risk.
