Lives Touched

Imagination is Your Limitation: Life is a journey that takes us to unexpected places. Horses for me have been an integral part of this, I hope this story encourages even one person to believe anything is possible whatever your situation - dream big and just go for it.
I have found volunteering at the Cavalier Centre very enjoyable, there is so much time spent with the horses and the staff are all extremely helpful and lovely. I have learnt a lot during my time here and learned so much more and so much more than I could have learnt from a textbook.
I often describe the Cavalier Centre as my “happy place” so if you’d like to spend time with ponies and make a real difference to someone else’s life then do give it a go. It could become your happy place too! 
'My favourite Pony is Archie, because he is cheeky'.
The Cavalier Centre very much relies upon the support of volunteers but, speaking as a volunteer, I cannot put into words how rewarding I find the time that I spend there is. Becoming a volunteer there has been a decision that I do not regret for one minute and I hope to continue my work there for many years to come.
‘I love all the horses at the Cavalier Centre but my stand out favourite is Freddie as he is the one that I ride and have a really good bond with, he is a gentle giant.’
It’s good that the Steps programme is here because it gives people who are struggling and who have challenges a chance to grow in confidence, build communication, work as a team and have fun. 
'Favourite moment? - every time a rider gets 'something' no matter what - to see it click is the best feeling.'
