At Cotswold Riding for the Disabled we believe life is about what you CAN do.
All our riders have a disability whether physical, mental or a learning difficulty, and we are here to help them achieve the very best they can whatever the disability or the age. We know our work has a huge impact on our riders’ physical ability and horsemanship but we also see beneﬁts in other areas of their lives such as their ability to communicate, to build relationships and engage with education.
As well as the difference we make to our riders, our impact research shows other important outcomes from our work. Volunteering with us brings positive benefits like physical exercise, transferable workplace skills and a sense of achievement and fulfillment.
Life for the parents of a disabled child can be stressful and difficult. Our riders’ parents tell us that whilst their children are riding they enjoy rare moments of relaxation when they can talk with other parents, share experiences and challenges with many forging supportive new friendships.
We have held an afternoon tea here for the last couple of years and it is open to everyone – our riders and families, volunteers but also the whole community. Very family friendly with tea and cake, games and arts and crafts. We are based in the heart of the racecourse and the event will be from 2pm to 4pm on 30th May.
