Riding

We welcome people of all ages and disabilities to apply for riding therapy. You may self- refer, be referred by your health practitioner, school or by a family member.

After contacting us you will be asked to visit the Centre for an assessment. This enables us to see what you can do, how much support you should have, and whether we have a suitable pony for your shape and size.

Our minimum age is 4yrs but there is no upper age limit.

Once a suitable ride become available you will be part of the wonderful life enhancing work that the horses and ponies do, along with our dedicated team of volunteers who have your best interests at heart.

For school age riders we make every effort to enrich the curriculum and support the child’s learning. All our participants are encouraged to expand their knowledge and can work towards certificates of competence in riding and horse care.

Tea with a Pony

A sensory experience for anyone living with dementia who can be driven here on a Wednesday afternoon during term time by their partner, carer, or family member.

A session in the stable yard, observing a lesson whilst having tea and cake, followed by a chance to pet or groom a pony, can trigger past memories and build new ones to share with loved ones.
