Unfortunately due to restrictions from the government and RDA National particularly around maintaining social distancing it has not been possible to offer our usual full range of riding and carriage driving lessons.

However once restrictions are eased to the level seen prior to the second lock down we will be able to return some of our disabled clients to riding as we had started to do just before lockdown 2 was announced. But this will still leave a number of riding and carriage driving slots unused and therefore temporarily available for some users in our timetable.

The provision of these new experiences will help to generate much needed income to help us to secure our core activity of providing horse riding, carriage driving and equine therapy to people with disabilities in partnership with RDA.

We will be doing this as soon as the government and RDA National guidelines allow to and we hope that will be as soon as possible. From December and with the expected easing of restrictions to Tier 1, we will be offering 4 new experiences for a limited time only’

As soon as Covid-19 regulations allow, we shall be expanding our portfolio of activities to include riding experiences for able-bodied riders as well as those with disabilities.

These will include: 

First rides – aimed at able-bodied would-be riders looking to ride a horse for the first time;

Experience rides – for those returning to riding after a break, or who want to regain confidence after a fall or incident which has caused them a setback;

Carriage driving – taking the reins through a course of cones in a paddock environment, and

Carriage driving on tracks through the delightful woodlands at Wallington Hall.

Surely this programme offers something for everyone, and would make a wonderful Christmas or birthday present for a friend or relative. To book, call the Magpie Centre on 01553 810202 or email magpiecentrewnrda@hotmail.co.uk
