About our sessions
We can accommodate riders from the age of four years and upwards, with a wide range of physical, learning and behavioural challenges and difficulties.
The riding sessions are run as half an hour group sessions, and these sessions will include some dressage, games in the school or hacking around Allerthorpe Woods.
Riders can be supported by a leader and up to two side-walkers who, together with the instructor, aim to maximise the benefit of each session. We do accommodate riders who are able to ride independently and we have a range of equipment that is available to help each client make the most of their ridden session.
In some cases we will conduct an initial session with a physiotherapist if we feel additional help and support is needed for the rider.
Currently we are working at full capacity with our riding sessions and we have a waiting list in operation, places are offered when a suitable horse/pony becomes available. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are hoping to expand our provision in the future.
