Horse Riding Lessons

Recommended Posts

Aas kids do !!!

 

my 7yo told me the other day, Dad I want a horse!

 

so after spending microseconds calculating the costs, storage, work involved, shoveling and grooming I laughed.

 

Heres the thing, this is my Autistic son, and it such a special thing when he shows an intrest in anything that I take more notice as the other kids have new hobies and intrests...and moreso wants every day.

 

When he wants something, He will take a genuine intrest long term and it wont be a passing whim.

 

I have read that close contact with animals can be beneficial to his condition too.

 

So I'd like to take him, but times are hard, I see that I can get instruction from crioft riding school at ?15 per hour (which equates to ?30) if I go with him, I need to bring this down...does anyone know of a cheaper local school.

 

ta!

Sorry if you think i am being ignorant but is Autism classed as disabled.

I only ask this as in Lymm they have Riding for the Disabled, which is a charity for disabled children.

I don't know it it will help you but its a thought

It is in some areas, depends. I think its down to the critera of the individual service.

 

Personaly I don't see it as a disability (for my son anyway) or a learning difficulty...more an interaction difficulty.

 

but thanks I will look it up.

 

 

any more ?

There are a few Riding schools in the Thompson, could be worth ringing some of them and asking to be pointed in the right direction.

Alder Root riding school charges ?10 for half an hour, or ?11.50 if you need to borrow a helmet and need leading, which young novices need usually. Sounds a bit more expensive than the one you've tried. :wink:

Try Bennets Farm at Walton - A56 quarter mile beyond Toast Rack bridge, on right travelling towards Daresbury - someone runs a riding establishment there.
