Our project is simple ... we want to increase the number of opportunities for disabled riders by developing a new outdoor riding school.

by NNWEC in Nuneaton, England, United Kingdom

Who we are ...

Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Equestrian Centre is a registered charity and purpose-built disabled riding facility which offers therapy, learning and training opportunities for disabled adults and children from all over Warwickshire. Our charity has been part of the local community in Nuneaton and North Warwickshire since 1979. 

What we aim to do ....

We aim to provide riding and the experience of being around horses in an inclusive, safe and supportive environment allowing individuals to achieve their full potential. To provide this service we depend on our committed group of staff and volunteers and input from families and personal assistants.

We work across the spectrum of disabilities, age and ability ensuring that each individual is given the chance to derive a direct therapeutic benefit and the opportunity to achieve their potential; whether that be helping on the yard, sitting with support astride a pony or riding independently. 

We support all of our riders to reach goals and personal ambitions, develop life skills and often to combat social isolation and poor mental health. Riders are also encouraged to develop a caring attitude and to connect with our specially trained horses and ponies.

Our small but committed staff team is supported by a group of enthusiastic volunteers who join us from the age of 13 and are an essential part of our operation.

Why are we crowd funding? ....

2020 has been a tough year!! No surprise there but Covid-19 has hit our charity, our staff, our clients and our horses hard.

The new Outdoor School will help us offer more horse riding opportunities to disabled, disadvantaged and young people in Nuneaton and North Warwickshire ... improving their lives but also enabling us to be more financially sustainable in very new world.

Our current indoor school is the heart of our operation offering lessons, therapy and the chance with clients to understand more about horses but social distancing guidelines put restrictions on its use limiting our options for using the school to its full potential.

The new outdoor school is a major investment but enables us to:

  • Double the number of lessons and activities available to our customers supporting our future sustainability.
  • Continue to deliver a socially distanced outdoor riding experience throughout the year, in the evenings and at weekends.
  • Open our doors to the wider local community offering access to our little bit of countryside for events, volunteering and employment.

What we need to fund ....

We need to build a covered open sided structure across our yard to allow all year round use, lighting, groundworks, outdoor seating and viewing and an under cover preparation area where horses can wait to join their riders .... its no small project but the impact will be huge and help shape our future.

Help us!!!

Help be a part of keeping this community resource available for the next generation of disabled riders and young people from the local community ... buy a share in our future and our horses future today!
