Welcome to the home of Muirfield Riding Therapy

We are a volunteer-led Centre, providing pioneering, life-changing equine therapy. Our services are free, we make it a fun experience for all involved, and provide an opportunity to make new memories. Based in East Lothian, we're a member group of RDA UK. In 2019 we celebrated 30 years of service to the community. 2020 was the 10th anniversary of our partnership with NHS Lothian, The Children's Therapeutic Riding Service.

There are 7 therapeutic riding sessions per week, both outdoor and in our wonderful indoor facilities, allowing 120 riders each week to benefit from riding therapy on our specially trained ponies. Our sessions are run entirely by trained volunteers and we are fully self-funded.

Riding Therapy

 

Find out what makes Riding a great therapeutic activity

Therapeutic riding provides multiple life-changing physical, learning, behavioural and social benefits to riders thanks to the movement, warmth and rhythm of the horse. Our core activities use the three-dimensinal movements of a horse to achieve specific therapeutic outcomes. Specially trained physiotherapists use selected horses as mobile therapeutic treatment tools. 

 

I love MRT.

 

We are sharing just what it is that our riders, their parents and carers and our volunteers feel about being part of MRT. And there’s a whole lot of love going around.

You can be part of it too.
