    The centre is  outdoors and would need to be accessed via car with parking spaces available.

    We have a large mounting block for riders but what we can’t cater for is extremely disabled who are fully time wheelchair bound and need lifts and hoists to mount them.

    We cater for a large range of disabilities as long as they have the mobility to get onto the mounting block.  Including physical, visual, hearing, learning, autism, ADHD, complex needs, dyspraxia if you’re unsure then please do ring the centre so we can discuss your individual requirements.

    We have been here for nearly 40years and cater for all riders both adults and children. We become an accredited RDA riding centre a few years ago now so are inspected with the disabled rider in mind. We have some staff that have a degree of sign language.

    We are all both DBS and  First aid  qualified.

    The centre is also KCC reg and we are the only riding centre in Thanet that is accredited and inspected by the British Horse Society and runs a programme called changing lives through horses that offers placements to both troubled children, excluded, disruptive and those with complex needs and often with autism, ADHD etc.

    We also provide lessons for Kent autistic trust and SNAAP.
