During Covid-19

Due to the pandemic, we have had to carry out everything online and have had no in-person sessions this academic year.

In term 1, we partnered up with Trent Park Equestrian Centre to provide our members with weekly horse riding sessions. These sessions covered a range of topics including the anatomy of the horse, prep to ride, olympic disciplines and horse behaviour. Through completeing these sessions, By completing these sessions, our members were working towards completing the British Horse Society Riding Fit Bronze Award.
