Based in Milton Keynes, Ride High is a charity that transforms the lives of disadvantaged children by giving them the opportunity to learn to ride and look after horses and ponies.
Over 80 children come to Ride High every week, for up to a year and follow a programme of structured learning which includes learning to ride and care for horses and associated clubroom projects. Children are referred by childcare professionals and all face a variety of challenges that make everyday life a struggle. For many of them riding is a first step towards a more positive future. By the time children leave Ride High over 90% are thriving in full time school, college or work experience.
Time spent with the horses promotes confidence, responsible behaviour, respect and trust. It provides the children with a challenge, the opportunity to do something special and to develop a sense of pride in their achievements. The horses help the children to manage negative feelings and anxieties and to increase their wellbeing and happiness.
Ride High celebrated its 10th anniversary this year having helped to change the lives of over 1,200 disadvantaged children in Milton Keynes. It provides an invaluable service in the community.
Ride High needs to raise £15,000 to replace its tired minibus. The charity collect and drop off all of their 88 children to and from home and school every week. Without the minibus service most of the children wouldn’t be able to attend Ride High and would miss out on the vital support they rely on from the charity. Please donate to Ride High so they can continue to transform the lives of disadvantaged children.
