Supporting Disabled Access Day

Supporting Disabled Access Day

A local riding centre based just outside Penrith in Cumbria, is holding a special event to mark Disabled Access Day.

Disabled Access Day was launched in 2015 to create opportunities for disabled people to try something new, highlighting the fantastic facilities that already exist at venues, as well as a friendly welcome.

Taking place on March 16th 2019, Accessibility Mark has joined forces with Disabled Access Day to encourage more disabled people to consider taking part in horse riding activities and learn about the benefits of spending time with horses.

As an Accessibility Mark accredited centre, Happy Hooves Riding Centre will be offering ride and groom sessions at a reduced rate of £15 and half hour hacks for just £10.

Happy Hooves is also the proud owner of the only mechanical horse in Cumbria. ‘Mr Williams’ will be available throughout the event enabling people to experience what riding a horse feels like without the apprehension of riding a real horse. The sessions on Mr Williams will be free of charge.

The event will start at 10 am and run until 2pm, with booking essential by contacting Happy Hooves on 01768 862153
