Nailsea Lions have helped disabled youngsters to enjoy horses and riding.

Following a highly successful barn dance, which raised over £300, the generous Lions have presented the Winford and Claverham Group of the Riding for the Disabled Association with 3 much needed specialist riding helmets and other equipment.  In thanking the Lions, Rita Lewis, of the Association, said the new helmets would allow more, very-young children enjoy the weekly riding sessions.  After watching the children riding, and sometimes galloping, Lion President PM Hunt, said how pleased the Lions were to support a group which does so much to enrich the lives of disabled children.  

Riding, and contact with horses and ponies, gives disabled children a sense of achievement and increases their self-confidence, as well as giving them great pleasure.  Each week the Group, which was formed in 1981, runs two sessions which can accommodate up to 7 children in each session, with different schools sending children each term.  The horses and ponies are provided by the Claverham Riding Centre, and the children are assisted by a team of 15 volunteers.
