At Chestnuts we have the use of a large indoor school and, for when the weather is suitable, an outside school with beautiful views of the South Downs.
We have portable mounting blocks, a hydraulic lift and specialist riding equipment to help our disabled riders.
Our own lovely horse is called Super Ted, and we have the use of other horses and ponies from the riding school, making up a wonderful safe and willing team.
Each week 12 adults and 12 children ride with us, their disabilities covering a range of physical, sensory and mental disorders.
