Why use the centre?

Fort Centre offers a unique outlet for adults and children with disabilities and learning difficulties through therapeutic riding.

Each one of the centre’s six horses has been handpicked for their suitability to work in the therapeutic riding programme.

The services made available at Fort Centre are FREE of charge and open to everyone who can benefit.

The benefits of therapeutic riding are well known and extensively documented. In fact, therapeutic riding is recognised in many quarters as one of the most progressive forms of therapy. The ability of the rider to control the animal and themselves inspires untold self- confidence, responsibility and teamwork.

Most importantly, working with horses offers the rider an exhilarating and exciting experience which can create a special bond between the rider and the horse.
