Cotswold Riding for the Disabled is more than a riding school. We have created a community of people who come together to ride ponies, or to help others to ride ponies. We are united by a strong sense that contact with ponies can offer excellent therapy to young and old who live with a disability.

We can see the physical benefits to the individuals who ride with us, and we can also measure the improvements in confidence, social skills and enjoyment!

Are you a coach with some free time?

Would you consider volunteering some time as a Riding for the Disabled Coach?

Here at Cotswold Riding for the Disabled we provide life changing therapy to over 200 riders with physical and/or learning disabilities. Our youngest rider is 3 and our oldest rider has just celebrated her 77th birthday. We need new coaches to help teach in the riding lessons, encouraging and supporting the riders.

We can train you in everything you need to know. We have a great team who will welcome you and support you and our training is fun.

Coaching with us is a good way to meet new people, gain new skills and you will be making a real difference to our riders. You need to be fit enough to stand and walk for two hours, with short bursts of jogging.

It would help if you had some teaching experience, leadership skills, good communication skills and lots of patience.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email for more information.
