P and R Equestrian Centre situated in Friskney, in the heart of Lincolnshire is the latest riding school to the gain the Accessibility Mark accreditation through Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA).
The Riding for the Disabled Association, in partnership with the British Equestrian Federation (BEF), launched the revolutionary Accessibility Mark scheme to work with commercial riding centres with the aim of opening up more opportunities for disabled people to participate in riding.
P and R is a family run yard managed by Pearl Massey that specialise in all aspects of riding, horse care and hacking. The centre provides horse riding set in a quiet corner of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside and riders are encouraged to develop at a pace that suits them and increase their capabilities using simple techniques.
Pearl became interested in the Accessibility Mark Scheme when she heard that the RDA was encouraging more riding schools to accommodate disabled people who wish to take up horse riding.
Said Pearl: “We pride ourselves on offering quality riding, hacking and leisure driving sessions in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment. Whatever your level of riding our aim is to improve your riding skills while having fun.
Accessibility Mark status is awarded to a riding centre that has been approved by the RDA following training and assessment. The close link with the RDA means that they offer continuous support to the establishment to ensure they provide you with a first class service and an experience that aims to be hugely beneficial.
