Research from a wide range of sources shows that interacting with horses can quite literally change lives!
Conquest Centre is a leading Somerset charity dedicated to providing a range of horse-based activities for people with physical and learning disabilities (including emotional and behavioural challenges) and through this benefiting their health and well-being.
Nestled in the Somerset countryside and overlooked by the Quantock hills our Centre provides an inclusive equine environment which welcomes our whole community and where all are equal, no judgements are made, and space is given for possibility to flourish.
Our work focuses on ability rather than disability and provides activities which both challenge and reward. Our staff and volunteers thrive on the chance to help each person shine in their own unique way, enabling them to achieve and hopefully surpass their personal goals.
Conquest Centre has been dedicated to delivering activities with horses since 1965, and we remain loyal promoters of these fabulous animals. The horse, free from the complexities of human nature, is the most honest, challenging and compassionate facilitator there is, and truly brings a touch of magic to any encounter.
