Operation Centaur promotes horses as contemporary working animals in partnership with humans through our heritage, conservation, community, equine assisted learning and therapy projects. Our seasonal carriage rides give people a chance to meet our magnificent Shires, and are an important fund-raising opportunity for our projects including:
• Conservation projects: hay-making, wildflower meadow, grassland management and woodland management in Royal Parks and Home Park;
• Cultural heritage work: carriage rides in Richmond Park, tram rides at Hampton Court Palace, and open days in partnership with the Shire Horse Society;
• Well-being interventions: equine assisted therapy with young people diagnosed on the autistic spectrum and innovative projects with rehabilitation;
• Community engagement programmes: cooperative group work, natural leadership development, and anti-bullying interventions.
