Presentations generally run for 45–60 minutes.
Ideally on a grassed, synthetic or similar asphalt surface, however we can accommodate the horse presentation in most outdoor open spaces.
The program can cater for approximately 300 children in one session, ideally in groups of 100-200 to ensure enough time for each child to pat the horse. However multiple sessions can be booked on the one day at the same school.
We will monitor the weather closely leading up to the day of your incursion, and in the event of extreme weather conditions we will notify you and will reschedule the incursion. If a large indoor carpeted area is available, this will be considered a suitable alternative.
We have comprehensive liability insurance for this activity and provide a Certificate of Currency and Job Safety Analysis (JSA).
Yes, all our staff have a valid WWC check
All the horses in our 16 Hands program have had experience as a Clerk of the Course horse and have been specially-trained and have had experience in this school incursion role, making them the ideal horse to visit schools and interact with children.
16 Hands provides a fun-filled educational hour, where children learn about horse health, anatomy, and other interesting facts
