HORSES became the centre of attention in the Hargreaves Mall this week when the team from The Equine Effect took to the street to promote mental health and wellbeing.

Lucy the three-year-old mini pony was a hit, while Hawkie,  a 28-year-old retired champion show pony led the way. The Equine Effect is Australia’s only provider of workplace training and leadership development with horses, and helps build high functioning teams and support workers be their best.
