Riverside is a 19-acre site, made up of woodland, stables, grazing and our outdoor arena it was purchased by the charity in 2009 and functions as the primary site for equine-assisted therapy, outdoor therapies, and activities. The site is situated in an area known as The Cleeve in between the villages of Shrewton and Orcheston.
Riverside is currently home to Gul’s 16 ponies, you can find out more about them here, as well as a huge variety of native wildlife such as rabbits, squirrels, foxes, badgers, buzzards, owls and native plants such as pyramid orchids, wild garlic and fire mushrooms as well!
Each week over 150 people make use of therapeutic activities taking place at Riverside hailing from all different backgrounds but sharing one thing in common, a love for the charity’s incredibly special site. Each year Riverside hosts several public outdoor events such as its Open Day and Summer Show as well as an extensive list of activities many of which use horses.
