    Working with beneficiaries in the CELT building on multi-sensory learning activities.

    As a Centre we greatly appreciate all our volunteers and the precious time that they give to the centre.
    Without them, the day to day running of the centre and the sessions would be extremely difficult and we wouldn’t be able to
    offer the services we do to as many people as we do.

    CSRC also offer student placements. Recent placements have included Veterinary Students, The Mulberry School of English,
    Duke of Edinburgh, school and college work experience. Please ring to discuss your requirements.

    About two years ago I decided to spend three months abroad in Wales. I thought it would be a nice thing to do but spending three months at the Clywd Special Riding Centre was more than nice. It was absolutely amazing!

    When The Mulberry School of English told me where to work for these three months I was really happy but I also wondered if I could handle the coming situations. But it wasn’t worth a thought. Working with all these wonderful people, great horses and also really nice riders was such a great experience for me. It was so great to see how the little things in life can make such a difference to some people and how friendly people can be to each other. The atmosphere at the whole Centre was so delightful and I really enjoyed myself working there.

    Writing this article is a big chance for me to thank you all: Thank you for long chats to practice my English, your help whenever it was necessary, fun at the yard and during the lessons, good hacks on the track, dinners and presents in the end and in general for being so nice! I had an amazing time with you.

    Love, Maike
