Horses healing scars for survivors of domestic abuse

Survivors of domestic abuse are turning to horses to help heal their emotional scars.

They have been learning to ride - and sometimes overcome their fears of the animals - at a farm in overlooking a beach at Porthmadog, Gwynedd.

Organisers say the eight-weekly courses for women and girls help them to learn how to build positive relationships again.

Some of those who have been through the programme have described it as life-changing - helping build confidence as they shake off the past.
