Welcome to Sheffield Group Riding for the Disabled

We hold riding lessons at two centres, Cowley Riding School (Holmesfield) and Smeltings Farm Riding Centre (Ringinglow), where we hire ponies and facilities for 5 riding sessions each week for around 40 disabled children and adults. Our 40 dedicated volunteers ensure that the lessons are safe and fun by side walking or leading the ponies.

Our riders have a range of physical and learning disabilities, movement difficulties, behavioural problems, etc. Interaction with horses can help the riders, their families, and their teachers live with their disability as it:

We are the only group in the region that provides such an opportunity and the carers acknowledge and appreciate the contribution that our sessions make to the rider’s and their own lives.
