Our Riders

Clients are generally referred by a medical practitioner and after initial assessment a riding programme is devised with the support of the group's own qualified physiotherapist.

Both adults and children with a variety of disabilities can be catered for and riders gain self confidence, independence and improved balance, posture and mobility.

There are opportunities for riders to work towards graded tests, if they wish, and we organise other activities such as fun days.

 

Reaching for the dish in the mounted games

 

Recently, we have been working with children as young as one to two years old who have severe problems.

The effect of the movement of the horse encourages the muscles to start working enabling them to begin to sit up unaided. This often leads on to learning to walk and makes the work extremely rewarding.
