Small groups from Barton Primary School in Newport have been attending Island Riding Centre since February 2020, for one morning a week helping around the yard with the horses as well as riding. The free sessions run for 90 minutes and usually extend into a packed lunch in the children’s playground before returning to school. Our favourite quote of many from the children said
“My best part was filling the massive hay net, grooming the pony and riding. What I found funny was when we were cleaning out the stable the teacher got some poo on his foot. I had so much fun wish I could go back again”.
