What a team

Get Social

Horse riding is a social activity which helps to increase confidence and body awareness. With the opportunity to make friends and build relationship with the horse or pony, riders can learn the basics whilst encouraged to develop their skills.


Riding a horse can help correct asymmetrical spinal postures. Stimulating bilateral muscles and mobilising joints can help improve coordination, posture as well as balance. For some, sitting positions and movements can also aid digestion.


Horse riding is often described as fun activity that provides disabled riders with the chance to participate in an enjoyable activity while reaping the physical and mental benefits that horse riding can bring.


Interacting with a horse or pony is multi sensory, so there will be new smells, sounds, sights and touch (through the pony’s fur and warmth). These new sensory experiences can be invigorating and exciting.

    Just some of the great comments we receive…

    Sharon and her team are so friendly. They’ve been helping my daughter to learn how to ride a pony, she was frightened at first, but she soon learned to really enjoy meeting the pony’s, especially Flynn.
