Horwood Coombe Inspire Ltd is an Equine Centre, Forest School, Post 16 Educational Provision and an ABRS Registered Equine Centre. Our principal aim is to benefit the local and wider community in terms of opportunity, education, employment, environment and social inclusion. We work with children and young people aged 5 – 25 years. All our students come with various abilities, disabilities and behaviours that may challenge them.
Working With Others, Organisational Skills, Resilience and Personal Progression (WORP) are embedded into everything we do. Students are encouraged to reflect upon and discuss Forest School and Equine activities and the academic work they complete.
Horwood Coombe Inspire is set in the heart of North Devon, within Bowden Farm. This family-run business has been farmed responsibly by the Heywood family for over six generations. The farm has around 1000 acres in the beautiful North Devon countryside, focusing on livestock and arable farming, sheep and free-range woodland eggs.
