To create an inclusive equine environment that will allow people to achieve their personal goals.
For all disabled people in our community to have the chance to participate in equine activities.
Conquest Centre is situated in the heart of the Somerset countryside. Overlooked by the Quantock hills and surrounded by the magic of nature, this is an environment where all are equal, no judgements are made and space is given for the possibility to flourish. Here we work to respond to the needs of people with disabilities and other additional needs, welcome the community, embrace the family and engage with nature.
We are a leading Somerset charity which has been dedicated to delivering activities with horses since 1965, and these incredible animals remain at the core of all the work we do. The horse, being free from the complexities of human nature, is the most honest, challenging and compassionate facilitator there is, and truly brings a touch of magic to any encounter. Interacting with horses can massively improve health and well-being, be hugely empowering, and quite literally change people’s lives!

My Day and Conquest Centre;
Conquest Centre is an amazing way for all of our service users to engage with horses, and now our goats, rabbits, and guinea pigs.
We engage in weekly horse care and equine therapy sessions with trained therapists at the centre, and our service uses can learn how to look after a horse including grooming, feeding, and riding the horse.
