Coronavirus Crisis – Roadmap to Riding

Muirfield Riding Therapy has been closed since the end of March due to the Coronavirus Crisis.  As we move into summer, we are planning for a phased return to therapy riding in line with Scottish Government and RDA National Office guidelines.

 

 

With Indoor Arenas now able to open in Scotland we are looking forward to when we can safely offer riding therapy sessions again.  The team have been planning for how we adapt what we do so that some of our riders can return.

Our Roadmap to Riding planning involves considering safety protocols for our Riders, our Volunteers, our Centre and of course our Ponies.

In the meantime, there are lots of ways you can stay in touch and help us to fund the upkeep of the Centre and the care of our specially trained therapy ponies, so that once we re-open we can help as many children, young people and adults as possible.
