More About Us
Our facilities are regularly inspected and approved by the local council. The Council uses our facilities for some of its Special needs and disabled service users. We have been appointed an official care provider for the new council personal budget care scheme and work closely with them to ensure our facilities are suitable for a wide range of able-bodied and disabled people of all ages. We are fully insured and all our instructors are qualified.
We also run a community volunteer programme. This has proved especially popular with parents as you don’t need to own a horse to be part of it, and it provides an outlet for all that youthful energy. It gives young people a chance to work with horses and gives them a sense of responsibility as well as getting them outside in a safe supervised environment. Parents tell us the results are nothing short of amazing…
We are hoping to expand our facilities in the future, include musical instrument tuition for able bodied and disabled. This would be separate to, but run alongside the riding. The idea is to build up a complementary pastime for local people and those who come down but want something extra to do.
