Pupils enjoyed their first session at Collacott Equestrian Centre as part of Riding Club on Thursday 23rd February. Despite howling winds, all pupils – particularly those who have never ridden before – learnt a great deal. Group 1 (led by our students in Group 2) experienced rising trot for the first time. Group 2 (our slightly more experienced riders) were asked some bigger questions and faced different challenges. Pupils then helped to untack their horses and put them in their stables.
At South Molton Community College we’re aware that horse riding can benefit out pupils in a variety of ways – including: developing balance, improving coordination and motor function. We can’t wait for next Thursday and to see the progress they make over this next 6 weeks.
