Super 1s participants take part in horse riding therapy workshops
Earlier this summer, young people from our Super 1s hubs across Hampshire visited The Fortune Centre to take part in specialised horse therapy sessions promoting healthy living, decision making and independence.
Our national disability cricket programme Super 1s aims to empower participants to become more independent, confident and more employable in the future. Working in partnership with organisations in communities across the UK has become important in our approach to provide disabled young people opportunities to further develop vital life skills.
Ten young people who attend Super 1s hubs in Hampshire were treated to a day of horse riding workshops at The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy, a specialist college for young people with disabilities aged 16-25. Working with horses, they prepare young people with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible and participate in their local community.
Thanks to funding from Berkeley Foundation, we're able to provide more experiences like this in addition to year-round, weekly cricket sessions.
