Herefordshire Riding for the Disabled welcomes the re-introduction of equine-based therapy at Holme Lacy this Spring, to support even more riders in the local community.

Hippotherapy is when a coach uses horse riding as a therapeutic or rehabilitative treatment. The horse’s motion can improve coordination, balance, and strength while having fun.

Physiotherapist Vicky Fudge leads the Hippotherapy sessions, and Vicky says; “Working closely with HRDA is terrific – because we share the same goals to give younger riders more confidence.”

Vicky delivers her enhanced support live on horseback or via the centres’ mechanical horse (he’s called ‘Steady Eddie’). Slots are open to book for child riders in half hour blocks. Individual sessions are £35 for thirty minutes each week.

To apply for Hippotherapy please email us on admin@rdahereford.org – and we will send an application form and direct you to our booking system.
