In July Brighterlife Care organised a visit to a horse riding stables where we got to learn how to groom a horse and we actually got to have a go at brushing and helping to groom the horse. The staff were all great at explaining things and supporting and encouraging us when we were doing this.
Also, as part of the session we got to ride a horse and for some of my friends it was the first time they had been on a horse. The horses were lovely and calm and patient and we all had a member of staff close by at all times in case we needed them. We all did really well at getting the horse to go around the arena and even walking around some obstacles! What a great experience!
We plan to keep going so that we can keep progressing and become more confident riders. We may even be able to work towards awards and get rosettes!
