Animal Enrichment

A very lucky group of children headed over to Red Piece Equestrian in Brigstock to have their first ever horse riding lesson last Monday.

At Greenfields, we are especially proud to be able to offer this incredible enrichment opportunity to a selection of children, with thanks to the Emile Faure Foundation who provide the funding for it.

Whilst at their first lesson, the children learnt about the safety equipment needed to ride a horse, how to safely approach and touch a horse, how to groom a horse and how to do the basics of riding a horse.

Most of these children had never even been that close to a horse so it was a massive achievement for them to mount the horse and ride it around the yard.

Alissia said that she had “the best day ever” and all of the children cannot wait to visit the equestrian again.
