As you may have read, our centre here at Lakefield Equestrian is affiliated with the British Horse Society (BHS) and we are very proud of our BHS qualified instructors. We share the same ethics and morals as the British Horse Society especially when it comes to their belief that you can change lives through horses with the “changing lives through horses programme.”

But what exactly is that?

The British Horse Society’s (BHS) ‘Changing Lives through Horses’ programme is a unique and inspiring initiative that has been making a big difference to equestrian centres around the country. This programme has been designed to provide access to horses and riding for those who, due to financial or social circumstances, would not usually have the opportunity to participate in our sport.

Here at Lakefield Equestrian, we are proud to be part of the BHS Changing Lives through Horses program, providing individuals from all walks of life with the chance to discover the joys of horse riding and the benefits that it can bring. We know from experience that horse riding can be a great source of fun, exercise, and companionship, and so we are passionate about giving people from all backgrounds the opportunity to access our equestrian centre and learn to ride.

Our team of experienced and friendly instructors work with riders of all abilities, providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to get the most out of their horse-riding experience. We take our responsibilities to our riders seriously and believe that everyone should have access to the same quality tuition and guidance.

Riders of all ages and abilities can take part in our BHS Changing Lives through Horses programme, with sessions designed to suit individual needs and abilities. We offer a range of activities, such as lead rein games, hacking, mounted games and show jumping, to ensure that riders get the most out of their time with us. We also provide educational talks and demonstrations, giving our riders the chance to learn more about horse care and horsemanship.

We are passionate about making a difference and believe that the BHS Changing Lives through Horses programme has had a hugely positive impact on our riders. We have seen a huge improvement in the confidence and well-being of our riders and have seen many of them go on to become accomplished equestrians.

We are proud to have been part of this programme and look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds to access the benefits that horse riding can bring.

By providing access to horses and riding, we can help to make a difference to people’s lives and create a more inclusive and welcoming equestrian community.
