The Tinnis Trust is a registered charity that advocates for equines and helps people to access the life-changing benefits of animals and the outdoors.
We work with families transitioning through trauma, female survivors of abuse or violence and care-experienced young people.
We provide therapeutic riding and horsemanship, equine assisted learning, care farming and forest school services.
We also provide training scholarships so that people from a diverse range of backgrounds can access careers in the equine assisted and land-based industries.
Trauma informed practice is at the centre of everything we do here at the Tinnis trust. Ours is an intentional approach to understanding and interacting with people who have or may be experiencing trauma. It assumes that most people are likely to have at least one traumatic event at some point in their lives and that, for some, this impacts the way they perceive the world and engage with others.
