WHO ARE WE?

 

We are the part of the Special Olympics movement for children and adults with learning difficulties who ride horses or ponies.

 

OUR HISTORY

 

We have been running for many years and the riders in our Group have competed in The National Games every 4 years.  We are very proud to have had a rider qualify and compete in the World Games in 2007. 

 

Last summer 8 riders, who qualified through our Regional Event, represented the East Midlands in the Summer Games held in Leicester.

 

THE PRESENT

 

We have a very enthusiastic committee who will be arranging two Riding Competitions this year, one in Spring and the other in Autumn, and also several Social, non riding, events during the year.

 

Please join us!

 

The 2 criteria are that you have learning difficulties and are having some training with a Riding Establishment in the East Midlands i.e. Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire.
