Horse Riding

Class groups take turns to access riding at Mid-Derbyshire Riding for the Disabled at Tansley.

The pupils are encouraged to learn about horses, grooming or tack. They experience a totally different physical activity in an exciting environment.

Horse riding helps children gain a sense of body-awareness, a sense of self-control and self-confidence, often improving communication and patience skills.   It also encourages them to develop balance, sensory processing skills and upper body co-ordination.
