Avon Riding Centre
Avon Riding Centre provides riding lessons to both disabled and non disabled clients. The centre also runs competitions, clinics, holiday activities, demonstrations, team building days and social events. As a charity Avon Riding Centre relies greatly on the support of sponsors and volunteers.
Avon Riding Centre provides the positive experience and proven therapeutic benefits of horse riding to hundreds of children and adults with a wide range of complex special needs each year. Recognised as a ‘Centre of Excellence’ for disabled riding both regionally and nationally. Each year, over 280 disabled children and adults benefit from a carefully structured programme of riding sessions.
For non disabled riding, both private and group lessons are provided from age 9 and above. The excellent facilities include a full size simulator, an indoor and outdoor school, a full set of show jumps and extensive hacking with some cross country obstacles.
All of us at ARC are determined to sustain its vital work. The challenges are considerable, but so is the opportunity for enabling the Centre to deliver greater benefits to our core clients and the wider community. Please help us achieve that vision.
