Some of our pupils have been visiting Orla and her amazing staff at Tralee Equestrian Centre for therapeutic horse riding lessons. Our pupils have been doing amazing work on building their balance, core strength and relationship with animals. The therapeutic benefits of horse riding are vast, providing physical, sensory, emotional & intellectual benefits and we are really noticing these benefits in our pupils as they progress each week.

In the first few sessions our pupils began with grooming and leading the horse and progressed to sitting on the horses and even riding around the arena. It has been wonderful to see the children's confidence grow each week.
