New to Kingston Seymour in 2018 and a first for North Somerset is a group enabling those with disabilities to take part in carriage driving.
Springwood RDA, a member group of the charity Riding for the Disabled Association, is a new venture organised by some like-minded local carriage drivers. The group’s aim is to provide opportunities to enjoy and interact with horses for those whose disability may otherwise be a barrier. Benefits that such an opportunity can provide are first and foremost fun and enjoyment, but also therapy, fresh air and enhanced well-being.
“Kipper”, Springwood’s flagship black and white driving cob, is brought to the village by trailer each week and his wheelchair-enabled carriage is kindly stored for the group at a nearby farm.
The level going and quieter lanes around the village provide the group with some ideal driving routes and unique opportunities to enjoy the wildlife.
The group meets on Mondays from 10.30am until 2pm at the Village Hall and potential participants and volunteers are warmly welcomed.
