Riding Therapy Programme

We have been offering professional Riding Therapy to young people with disabilities for more than 45 years. We serve children with autism, learning disability and physical disabilities, including those who cannot walk or with limited mobility.

Our para hoist, funded by the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People and the Shanly Foundation, allows us to provide a broad range of Riding for the Disabled services. You can see the hoist in action at

Kentish Town City Farm is an approved riding centre by both the Riding for the Disabled Association and the British Horse Society.
