As part of our outdoor pursuits activities the Key Stage 1 children will have the opportunity to go horse riding. They will learn all about how to look after a horse and have the opportunity to ride one. The children will be fully supervised in this activity with 1:1 support by experienced volunteers at the riding school and Kingsbury Staff. Horse Riding helps to develop many skills with our children including fitness and sensory exploration. It also helps to develop new skills and strengthen the children’s confidence with doing new things and increase children’s independence. Helping to look after the horses can help with numeracy and literacy skills. The children will be able to go horse riding for a number of weeks so they can build up a relationship with the horses. It’s ok if the children are a little bit worried at first, horse riding is multi-sensory experience so even if the children are a little afraid to go on the horse there are still many worthwhile experiences to be had with horse riding.
