The club aims to offer therapeutic equine activities to individuals living with dementia, providing them with an opportunity to engage in once-loved pastimes.

This partnership allows us to offer people living with dementia a chance to reconnect with beloved activities in a beautiful, rustic setting surrounded by horses. Our specialist day club staff will fully utilise the facilities, enabling club members to participate in meaningful equine-related activities, including horse and cart rides, which can significantly improve mental and physical health.”

The launch event on June 17th saw a gathering of local professionals, caregivers, and community members, all eager to support this innovative approach to dementia care. The Follifoot Riding Centre, renowned for its excellent facilities, professional staff and the compassionate volunteers of Disabled Riders Group offers an ideal setting for this groundbreaking program.
