This project was funded on 29 Nov 2019!

The Royal Artillery Equestrian Centre provides accessible opportunities for mental wellness to individuals (serving personnel, veterans and those within the local civilian community) in an inclusive and empowering environment. The purchase of an adaptive saddle will help to put disabled riders back in the saddle and enhance their lives greatly. The therapeutic benefits of allowing people to interact with the horses compliments both general wellbeing and mental health.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide horse riding for disable people

Why it's a great idea:

Horse riding is therapeutic. Riding offers riders countless benefits, including improved strength and coordination, increased balance, and even improved confidence. By purchasing an adaptive saddle we can greatly help disabled try something new. This will have a positive impact on now only their physical but mental wellbeing.

Steps to get it done:

  • Saddle Purchased
  • Saddle Fitted and Trialled by Staff
  • First Disabled Rider uses the adaptive saddle
