Looking to ride
If you haven’t ridden for years or have always wanted to but never quite found the right moment, make today the day that you #GetHorsey. What type of riding you choose and the way that you do it is entirely down to you. There is no hard and fast rule. If you’re the sort of person who likes to learn in a more structured environment, a lesson in a British Horse Society (BHS) or Association of British Riding Schools (ABRS) establishment will tick all your boxes. If you prefer things a little more casual, you’re probably best to opt for a trekking centre or holiday company offering rides through the countryside.
Disability needn’t be a barrier if you would like to ride. Get in touch with your local Riding for the Disabled Association group or Accessibility Mark-approved equestrian centre, which will be able to help. Visit rda.org.uk for a full list of venues.
