The aim of our group is to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the pleasure of driving a pony and carriage.
Driving a pony and carriage gives the participant the feeling of freedom from their disability.
The ability to move about and to control that movement.
We aim to improve the quality of life for people with disabilities that sometimes prohibit many activities.
The group achieve their aims by allowing people with a wide range of
disabilities to enjoy a physical activity, in good company, in the great outdoors and safely.
We aim to encourage social activity as well as interaction with the animals, helpers and other members of the group. We want every person connected to the group to enjoy the ‘feel good’ factor that comes with achievement.
As a bonus, the many good people who are linked to the group by offering their help also benefit by gaining a great deal of pleasure in the hard work that they do.
Activities are split into four main areas:
1 – Driving – just enjoy the ride or drive yourself
2 – Dressage
3 – Cone courses
4 – Social ‘fun’ days (Fun and games for the whole group)
All activities are open to any member regardless of ability – and they are all FUN!
Currently our Group offers driving sessions on two days a week, either on a Friday between 1pm and 3pm or Sunday afternoon between the hours of 12 pm and 2 pm.
