Springbridge Driving for the Disabled
The Charity’s Aim is to make a difference to the lives of disabled people in a very special way, providing them with the opportunity to carriage drive that will bring new dimensions and encourage independence. The focus is to ensure that all visitors derive maximum benefit from a positive and enjoyable form of therapy. The group is run from Springbridge Stables in Willoughby Waterleys, sessions are run every Wednesday and Thursday from 12.00 onwards.
The group offers carriage driving in a safe, supportive and happy environment to adults and children (12+) with special needs, physically disabled or with learning difficulties. The group uses specially designed vehicles that can safely and securely accommodate a wheelchair.
All the driving ponies are fully inspected and licensed for driving for the disabled. Safety equipment and accessories are provided for the individual.
Springbridge Driving for the Disabled is run totally on donations and volunteers so if you can help us in any way please get in touch. To find out more visit http://springbridgerda.weebly.com/
