About Us

Collytown Therapy Ponies has evolved from the nationally renown Collytown Shetland Stud, the stud prides itself on breeding ponies that are quiet, gentle & friendly, we now share their charm and therapeutic benefits with others on a different level.

Come and visit them at the beautiful and tranquil therapy centre for personal therapeutic experience surrounded by stunning countryside ~ take some time to enjoy the peace & serenity while interacting with the wonderful ponies that are making such a positive difference to so many lives.

As Qualified Equine Assisted Therapists & Certified Advanced Equine Facilitated Practitioners we offer Equine Therapy Sessions a recognised & growing form of therapy which offers a broad spectrum of benefits especially beneficial for people suffering from depression or trauma.

The ponies can also travel out and go inside settings or Residential/Care Homes (even visiting individual bedrooms!) spreading love and happiness to all they meet. Non confrontational by nature, our ponies have very kind & gentle temperaments making them ideal for older people or those with autism or challenging behaviour. We are delighted to be able to provide this service to the people that need them most.


We love visiting nurseries and schools. Children can stroke, groom and walk the ponies.
