Chariots of Fire (Amazing Summer)
— FULLY BOOKED —
Carriage driving is a unique activity where even those with severe physical disabilities can take part. We have aids that can give people access to the sport – eg. a rein bar to be used by a person with the use of only one hand, or loops which make it easier to hold the reins. We also have carriages that can hold a wheelchair for drive outs, lessons, or even to be driven at speed in competition.
In addition to our able bodied clients, the centre now delivers activities to over 200 clients with additional needs, particularly young people with conditions like cerebral palsy and autism spectrum disorders. Our drivers often also learn transferable skills during their time here, such as developing core strength and the self-confidence to interact with a wide range of people.
6 Sessions are available each date. This event must be booked by contacting the PIN team direct.
This activity is funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council Amazing Summer funding. If you would like to see what other opportunities are available for your child through this funding you can visit the Amazing Summer website.
