Lynn Petersen is speaking at the National Equine Forum about the new campaign created by the British Horse Society called Changing Lives Through Horses. A programme designed to help NEET young people (Not in Education, Employment or Training).
Lynn explains the support offered to instructors who would like to take on the programme, how riding schools can get involved, and the overwhelming support the Changing Lives Through Horses offers young people.
NEF: 250 delegates congregate in a stunning room once a year, along with a panel of experts within the Equestrian Industry. They discuss various topics that effect all Equestrians. Topics such as the effects of Brexit on the industry, the impact the increased business rates will have on equestrian businesses, the Thoroughbred Health Network and the National Equine Database, to name a few. The NEF's President is HRH Princess Anne who will be joining the Forum, along with DEFRA Minister, Lord Gardiner.
