Riding for the Disabled

Riding For The Disabled

Meet Poppy one of the ponies selected for Riding for the Disabled to help our children to compete in Regional and National Dressage and hopefully train them for future Paralympics.

We have two Riding for the Disabled Groups based at The Wyke ~ The Wyke Riding for Disabled & Brocton Court Group. Both groups use the ponies and Instructors based at The Wyke Equestrian Centre and both groups have made it possible for young disabled riders to have the opportunity of lessons, riding in the outdoors and competition.

All funding is raised by the volunteers that run the groups. We receive many donations for which we thank the many donors and use the money to fund the lessons and send the children, instructors and helpers to national and international competitions.

We are always looking for helpers to lead ponies and walk by the children as side helpers. If you think you can help please contact us we would be very grateful of your help.

Meet Amy Fyles riding Caspar after a very successful day at The National Dressage Competitions at Hartpury College in Gloucester in the summer of 2002.

Disability athletes' dietary habits and supplement consumption must be closely monitored in order to maximise their performance. When it comes to horseback riding injuries, peptides can help with things like faster recovery, joint pain and soft tissue injuries. Click here
