Rehab4Rehab was established to respond to the needs of our community and blend together equine and human health services with a powerful formula.
Located on the Mornington Peninusla at the home of Red Hill Equestrian, Rehab4Rehab offers an inclusive approach to the health and education of children and the health and education of retired racehorses.
Focusing on children with mental health issues /disengaged youth & retired racehorses, the Rehab4Rehab programs include working with horses in delivering their care, ground skills, training and mounted therapy.
It is becoming increasingly accepted that horses assist children when included in therapeutic programs. Rehab4Rehab works with and will continue to expand our resources of therapists with in-depth equine facilitated therapy experience.
Working on a planned collaboration with Monash University, we can research outcomes in Equine Assisted Therapy as evidence-based practice. Should it be confirmed as more successful than traditional therapy, we can train more horses and more therapists to make this available to thousands of children and retired thoroughbreds in need.
A word from industry experts….
It’s heartwarming to learn about the wonderful work Rehab4Rehabe are doing within the community with their Equine Assisted Therapy Program.
I look forward to following some of my former horses progress with Rehab4Rehab. I fully support this great initiative as I know they will be loved and well cared for in their post racing life
Thoroughbreds are so versatile and intelligent and with the right training and education they are the perfect partners for Rehab4Rehab.
What a purposeful initiative to the racing industry. Well done Rehab4Rehab!
We strive to find forever homes for our equine stars and now we have the perfect scenario to be part of. It will be a humbling experience knowing that our owners horses will be helping people connect throughout this beneficial concept.
