Cotswold Riding Opportunities Project
Do you know any children, teenagers or adults who are looking for new ways to spend their time? Perhaps they have an existing interest in horses and animals or could benefit from some fresh air! Cotswold Riding Opportunities Project (CROP) is an emerging Community Interest Company based at Bourton Vale Equestrian Centre. CROP offers opportunities for all ages, which promote physical and mental wellbeing in the great outdoors!
CROP’s popular Saddle Club for primary school aged children (Fridays 4-5pm term-time only) is a practical, non-riding club, which teaches the basics of pony and general animal care in a safe and fun environment. It is a confidence building chance for children to make friends, play games and learn in the fresh air!
For secondary school aged children, CROP runs a Young Equestrians club (Mondays 4-5pm) which provides opportunities for teenagers to further develop existing skills or gives them a first time introduction to horses. It is also a good place to taste a career in horses with lots of advice and guidance available, as well as experiencing the amazing therapy of horses and the social benefits of a youth club.
For adults, CROP offers a monthly meet up (11-12.30 on the last Wednesday of every month) to experience the peace and magic horses can bring. Whether you have never touched a horse before or are rekindling a past love you can join them for tea and cake!
CROP clubs run throughout the year whatever the weather so wellies/boots and waterproofs are a must.
