  • ABOUT US

The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy's mission is to enable horse-motivated students with special needs to relate more successfully to others and to have greater and more appropriate control over their own lives.  This use of horses, to enable young people to learn and develop, is the core of our work. It is the reason for The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy's existence and has been the mission since the foundation of the work in 1976. It will remain the mission and our unique offer as a specialist independent provider.

The FCRT works with young people’s motivation for horses, to harness the motivation to enable co-operation, communication and concentration.  The FCRT works especially with young people with learning difficulties and disabilities, complex physical disabilities and with those from deprived inner city areas.

A residential Further Education Through Horsemastership (FETH) Course allows people who cannot progress at school and whose educational needs cannot be met in ordinary colleges, to benefit from further education.  Literacy, Numeracy, Communication, independent travel, money management and social skills are all taught and learnt in a horse environment, using the horses’ inclusiveness, warmth, smell, movement, routine and needs.

Work experience placements and strong links with the local community provide opportunities for students to use new skills to progress to meaningful occupation and independence that would otherwise not be possible.
