Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Please support the launch of the Equine Scholarship Scheme. This will be offered to young children with special needs or children with home difficulties. The children will receive a year's tuition in riding plus other educational programmes and equestrian activities all of which will help them gain confidence and become a higher achiever. The course will be great fun as the pony becomes the catalyst for the children to learn and develop new skills. 

Each scholarship will cost £1,500 and will include riding equipment, books, courses, tuition in riding and caring for ponies, various equine therapy sessions plus taking part in competitions and pony tests. In addition there will be outings and other pony fun events which all children will enjoy. Each child will be assessed and given professional support during the year. Parents and school teaches will be encouraged to also become involved whilst a child is on the course.
