Glint: Horse Assisted Development

Glint is a small social enterprise nestled in the beautiful Pennine countryside, overlooking Huddersfield.

Our aim is to support people in making positive changes to move them forward as individuals, teams, or organisations.

We don’t teach people to ride! Horse Assisted Development involves ground-based activities with our horses and ponies that are designed to help you identify and develop your own skills and strengths and so realise your potential.
