Hire the Riding Area

The Hippotherapy and Therapeutic Riding service at Chailey Heritage Foundation provides young people the opportunity to engage in cardiovascular exercise whilst enjoying an outdoor activity. We have two ponies who work with our team of three Chartered Physiotherapists and five other staff. Our riding area is an outdoor, well-lit, fenced, all weather arena. There is a full body hoist which can be used to lift riders on and off the horses.

The benefits of hippotherapy include:

  • Improving ability to sit
  • Postural skills to improve core stability and head control
  • Increasing upper limb selective control and dexterity
  • Developing co-ordination and spatial awareness
  • New, multisensory experiences
  • Educational learning about the environment and animal care

The riding area can be booked out for:

  • Hippotherapy sessions
  • Private riding sessions
  • Summer school
