Why have you suspended regular activities?
It is not possible to maintain safe social distancing for groups of people in line with the government guidance and so we are not operating normal charity activities in order to maintain public health safety and that of our staff, clients, volunteers and Ride High members.
What activities are you conducting?
At the Ride High charity we are keeping in touch with the Ride High members via email, phone and weekly postal packs of activities.
At the equestrian centre a small team of staff are looking after the horses and from Monday 18th they will be running a number of private one to one lessons for some of our experienced equestrian centre clients who don’t need close contact support with things like mounting and adjusting tack.
When will Ride High resume activities?
We will restart our programmes, lessons and courses as soon as the government deems it safe to work with groups of children. We will update the website and our social media channels with the latest information as and when we have updates.
Will Ride High survive this crisis?
We are taking sensible measures to safeguard the future of the organisation, such as furloughing many of our staff and taking advantage of all the available government support. We are very committed to the work we do with charity children and our equestrian centre clients and are optimistic that we can weather this storm.
Will you keep all the horses?
Yes absolutely!!! This is a temporary lock down. Some of the horses are coming into work for the private lessons and the rest are enjoying a well-earned holiday.
Can we still volunteer at Ride High?
In order to restrict social contact, we are asking volunteers not to come in but if things change and it is deemed safe then we will contact our regular volunteers and post something on the website.
How will I get information about Ride High?
Can we come and see the horses?
In order to keep everyone safe we are asking you not to come onto the site for the time being. We will review the situation regularly, but this won’t change until the government relaxes the current strictures on social distancing.
Will you be working with children with an EHCP or children of frontline workers?
We won’t be running a normal programme at Ride High. However we are looking at how we can keep in remote contact with the Ride High children.
