HIPPOTHERAPY SUCCESS AT THE UNICORN CENTRE

We have great news about one of our participants, Olivia Fairclough, who has been taking part in our Hippotherapy Project after she was paralysed in a riding accident in Egypt three years ago. She is now riding Alfie on a Torsion saddle, is riding off the lead rein and has progressed to sitting trot - all in three months or so!

Olivia's next step is to progress on to private riding lessons at the Centre with her goal to become a Paralympian one day.  Now that's what we call ambition!
