What we do After school sports Horse riding This is an extremely popular and in-demand session, with very few slots so your child may have to wait on a waiting list for a while. The therapeutic benefits of horse riding for disabled children are well known and as a parent, you surely want your child to benefit from this as well. Your child will be supported by two volunteers at first, until they can balance themselves. They will always have 1:1 support because of the nature of the session. You can expect to see improvements in your child’s balance and posture, as well as their walking and core fitness. Many children learn to love their horses and develop a genuine relationship with them. You may also see improvements in your child’s communication skills as a result.
