Steven Benson

Steven’s riding high again!

Friday 28th February saw the unveiling of Island Riding Centre’s brand new Para Rider hoist from Dolphin Mobility. This is the Island’s only equine mobility hoist and enables all wheelchair bound adults and children the opportunity to get onto horse back.

The first lucky rider to use the hoist was Steven Benson from Wootton. Steven who suffers from cerebral palsy is already a regular visitor to IRC with Scope, attending ‘Messy Play’ sessions made possible by the recently installed Changing Places toilet which enables him and others the chance to leave their home for a welcome change of scene and which until Friday meant only watching the horses.

Barton Primary School

We welcome Barton Primary School

In association with our Community Interest Company Wight Horse we were delighted to welcome some of the staff and pupils from Barton Primary School for a pony ride and stable management session.

Mrs Meredith and Mr Whiting accompanied ten pupils from across the school where they spent the morning grooming the horses, mucking out the stables and then they enjoyed an exciting horse riding session.

Wight Horse CIC continues to raise funds to provide free and subsidised sessions at Island Riding Centre for groups and individuals who have financial and physical limitations and we look forward to supporting local schools as part of this project.

If you would like to support Wight Horse CIC or find out more, please get in touch by emailing info@wighthorse.co.uk or call IRC on 01983 214000.
