Riders Minds is an online bespoke resource dedicated to supporting the mental health and well-being of all horse riders.
Currently there are 19 million riders in the UK. Given 1 in 4 people in UK will experience a mental health issue at some point in their lives, a large proportion of riders at some point will experience a mental health problem, whether directly or indirectly.
Admitting to yourself that you are not ‘okay’ can be hard, but it is important to know that you are not alone and support is available.
THE OBJECTIVE OF RIDERS MINDS IS:
To remove the stigma of speaking out by raising mental health awareness, understanding, and confidence amongst all riders.
To provide guidance, support and help by creating Riders Minds: an extensive, user-friendly, online mental health and well-being resource.
To provide and host a Riders Minds helpline that is accessible to all riders.
A team of trained professionals are ready to help on the Riders Minds helpline. All calls are confidential and members of BE also have access to free support groups.
