Sport and Recreational Programme

The aim of the Sport and Recreation Programme is to provide riders with the skills and confidence to enable them to feel that they could attend a mainstream riding school if this is the path they wish to follow. We realise that not all of our riders will have that goal, but we hope that this programme can provide them with transferable skills to succeed in other activities of their choosing. The programme itself provides a framework with base lesson plans around which a coach is able to successfully work with a wide range of riders with varying abilities and challenges. Although graduating is an outcome for some riders it is not a one-size-fits-all programme and the riders can repeat the programme as many times as necessary.
