Horse Riding for the Disabled
This busy and popular section of ABLEize provides details and links to horse riding for the disabled websites as well as carriage driving activities for disabled people of all disabilities and ages throughout the UK. Riding and equestrian sports are a therapeutic activity as well as an enjoyable experience for those with a disability or special needs, the less mobile and wheelchair users.
