Our Riding for the Disabled Group is based just outside the city of Wells, on the fringes of Somerset's Mendip Hills. It runs every Tuesday, by kind permission of Burcott Riding Centre.
At the moment we have about 25 riders a week - who come to master on horseback the balance and co-ordination that's difficult to manage on the ground. We start with the basics but our riders soon progress to gymkhana type games and other fun. But there's a serious side to what we do: in physical terms riders exercise over a hundred muscles a minute without knowing it (making each trip to the stables an unwitting physiotherapy session) while the benefits of interacting with horses in the fresh air, building a new skill and feeling the huge sense of achievement riding can give speak for themselves
