This school year a group of students started weekly horse riding lessons as part of their timetable. Some having had previous riding experience with others being complete beginners.
The lessons began with our riders becoming familiar with their horses and gaining confidence mounting and dismounting them. All of our young riders were very gentle and done very well. Once this had been perfected, the next step was to practice walking and steering with their horse.
All of our students have now progressed onto riding trot and are really enjoying their time with the horses, some stating it is therapeutic to them.
We hope to continue with riding for the remainder of this school year and it will be lovely to watch our students gain confidence and become proficient riders.
