Challenging Disability Through Outdoor Adventure



Horse Based Activities

Calvert Trust Exmoor's stables offer a wide range of horse based activities.

As well as regular riding, horse based activities include carriage driving (which can also be done from a wheelchair), horse behaviour and ‘learning to speak horse’ sessions, and tandem riding (where a child who can’t support themselves can have a member of staff sit behind them and 'act as their spine').

 

Guests can also get involved in stable management sessions such as grooming, tacking up and mucking out, working with horses both loose and with a lead rope, or horse agility sessions; working with a horse to get round a course of cones, over tyres and seesaws and other obstacles.

 

Horse based activities are a great way of gaining confidence, increasing independence, and developing new skills in an enjoyable way.

 

To find out more about horse based activities at Calvert Trust Exmoor contact us on exmoor@calvert-trust.org.uk  or 01598 763221.

 

Some medical conditions may mean a guest is unable to ride a horse; in these circumstances we are likely to offer carriage driving as an alternative option.

 

Following guidance from multiple equine experts, we have reviewed the maximum weight limits for guests doing horse riding and carriage driving.

 

This means that you may no longer be able to take part in these activities, even if you have previously undertaken them here with us. We are really sorry if we can no longer offer you this experience with our horses, however we hope you will understand that we want to look after the welfare of our horses, as well as providing the best possible experience for our guests.

 

If this affects you and you would like to discuss it further please call us on 01598 763221.
