Here at the Nottingham Group of Riding for the Disabled, we are a happy and friendly group providing riding lessons for children on Thursdays during term time. We are based at Lings Lane Riding Stables in Keyworth, Nottinghamshire. We hire our fabulous pony friends from the venue but we have our own tack and equipment. Riding takes place in an outdoor all-weather arena and along adjoining bridleways and in fields so our riders experience the magic of the countryside.
We are all dedicated volunteers and we come in all shapes and sizes, ages and backgrounds. We pride ourselves that we work well as a happy and successful team to provide our riders with the opportunity to ride to benefit their health and wellbeing and to achieve their goals. Through their riding sessions, our riders can improve confidence, balance, co-ordination and concentration leading to greater independence and self-esteem. Working with the ponies and volunteers helps the riders develop their social and communication skills whilst all the time having FUN!
