About your Good Cause
We are a dedicated charity offering horse riding for disabled adults and children from the local community.
All our helpers and volunteers and we rely completely on donations and grants to fund our activities. Riding benefits those that take part in a number of ways. Physically, as they will be using muscle groups that may not have been used for some time and also often it builds confidence and the ability to listen and take instruction. Importantly it can also help them to feel a parity with able bodied people who ride, which builds self esteem.
Our riders take part in hacks out in the countryside if weather permits and if not we have an indoor school where they can learn simple movements on their ponies.
We also organise a gymkhana which is very popular as it gives them the chance to be involved in fun games and parents and family can come along to support and cheer them on.
We have been offering this service since 2004 and we believe we are the only organisation of this type in the local area. We aim to offer a fun activity in a controlled and safe environment and are very grateful for your support.
