We are a leading organisation in the field of equine therapy, pony training and children’s natural horsemanship.
Through educating young people in how to communicate with a pony and ride in balance we empower them to develop confidence, resilience and powerful communication skills.
Our approach is inclusive of all children but is proven to be life-changing for vulnerable children referred through social services, schools and the NHS’s mental health services.
Reaching up to 160 children each week with over 80 children on our waiting list, we have now far exceeded our current base and are fundraising to build a purpose-built flagship centre.
We are supported and endorsed by the Big Lottery Fund, Comic Relief, John Lewis, EY Foundation and The Rotary Club. We have received awards from Child Friendly Leeds and have been recognised as the best riding school in the region through Corporate LiveWire’s Prestige Awards.
We also have an interactive online club for both the students that ride with us and those that don’t. We have members world wide both with and without their own ponies. There are over 70 badges available for them to earn! It is an excellent educational facility and we were wondering if there is anywhere that we could make the ABRS members aware of what we offer?
