The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy (FCRT) is an Independent Specialist College and charity for young people with complex needs and a love of horses.
The College offers an equine work-based curriculum that develops our student’s education, employability goals and independent living skills.
This unique delivery of teaching and learning focuses on transferrable skills from the horse-based environment to that of daily living skills. Work experience and a variety of vocational qualifications are integrated into the student’s programmes to prepare them for life after the FCRT.
The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy also provides non-residential Equine Facilitated Education and Therapy for young children and older adults with a variety of disabilities.
Students are funded by the UK government through their Local Authority. Capital income and expenditure is dependent on charitable donations.
The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy’s work is spread across three locations in The New Forest, Hampshire, England.
