Guests have a number of options during their stables session, to cater for all disabilities.
Individuals can ride a horse, and play some games to improve their riding confidence.
People who use a wheelchair or cannot mount a horse can enjoy a carriage ride, which provides a great opportunity to take in the amazing surrounding views while spending time with the horses.
Everyone on the session gets to meet different horses and ponies, stroking them which is interactive and sensory. Some guests enjoy learning about horse behaviour and ‘how to speak horse’. Guests can also get involved in stable management sessions such as grooming, tacking up and mucking out
It’s also possible to do pony agility sessions – working with a pony to get around and over obstacles.
Horse-based activities are a great way of gaining confidence, increasing independence, and developing new skills in an enjoyable way. Our friendly horses and staff give everyone a sense of calm and wellbeing.
Please note: Horse and Carriage Riding activities only take place during midweek or full-week breaks, and are not available at weekends. For the health of the horses and ponies, there are weight restrictions for guests wishing to participate in riding or carriage driving.
