Long Lane Equestrian Centre Gains Accessibility Mark

Accessibility Mark

Long Lane Equestrian Centre, based in Derby has signed up to a national scheme, Accessibility Mark, to encourage more disabled riders to take up horse riding.

Following an appeal by the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) for more centres to apply for the Accessibility Mark accreditation to help meet demand in the North Midlands area, the centre decided to jump on board. A study by the RDA found that this region has the highest level of unmet demand amongst disabled riders than anywhere else in the UK.

The RDA, in partnership with the British Equestrian Federation (BEF), launched the revolutionary Accessibility Mark scheme to work with commercial riding centres with the aim of getting more disabled people to participate in riding.
