    We provide ridden, grooming and proficiency sessions. We even have some riders who compete in Regional and national competitions.

    The people who come riding with us have a very wide range of conditions; some have physical or mental disabilities, learning difficulties or autism or complex emotional needs, and horse riding provides them with physical therapy and exercise, as well as providing opportunities for achievement, fun and socialisation, and we see improvements in people’s physical health, mental well being, confidence, communication and enjoyment.  

    We are a small charity relying solely on the help of volunteers to provide this invaluable service. We receive no government funding and are only able to keep functioning through fundraising, donations, and charging a small fee for lessons.
