Stable Love

Social worker Saffy Sutton knows that horses can work wonders with people who are unwell, or have disabilities.

So to mark the start of her new single life, she’s spending a fortnight in a holiday centre run by Riding for the Disabled. Whilst there, she teams up with Doug, a GP who is a regular visitor. There is an instant attraction between them and together with ponies Bumble, Jupiter and Merlin they help young people with Down’s syndrome, ADHD amongst other conditions. All grow fitter, stronger, happier in more ways than just physically.

Its a strange quirk of life that often the person with the biggest problem is often the last to see it. Saffy has been let down in a previous relationship and moving on isn’t easy.

Can the healing power of horses work their magic on her?
