Aintree hosts 1st ever disabled riding session for local kids

AINTREE Racecourse, working in partnership with Everton in the Community and Riding for Disabled (RDA), has today hosted its 1st ever disabled riding session as part of the newly formed Aintree Community Programme. Over 20 children from the local area and Everton in the Community's Disability Programme were invited, with their parents, to enjoy a packed day at Aintree Racecourse. The children, some of whom have autism or learning disabilities, were given the opportunity to try riding for the 1st time, learn how to groom and look after a horse, enter the famous Weighing Room and dress up in jockey's silks, enjoy panoramic views of Aintree at the top of the Sefton Stand, and learn more about the world renowned Crabbie's Grand National.

Grant Rowley, Regional Communications Manager for Jockey Club Racecourses, said:- "We're delighted to have launched our first disabled riding session at Aintree as part of the Aintree Community Programme. Today was a fantastic day and by working with our partners, Everton in the Community and the RDA, we hope to provide many more sessions in the months and years for local people. Our relationship with the community is very important to us and we can't wait to provide more opportunities to kids and adults at the home of the Grand National."

Beechley Stables, based in Allerton and who are part of the RDA provided the expertise required to undertake the session. British Horseracing Education and Standards Trust (BHEST) provided tuition on the day as part of the Racing Together programme of which Aintree has been selected as the Beacon Racecourse out of 59 racecourses around the UK. Racing Together is an industry wide project aimed at coordinating and communicating British Racing's community outreach and making a real difference to local children. Everton FC's official charity, Everton in the Community, is one of the UK's top sporting charities and has joined forces with Aintree for this, and a number of other community projects.  Steve Johnson, Disability Development Manager for Everton in the Community, said:- "Today has been a great success and it was clear to see by the massive smiles on the faces of these children and their parents just how much they have enjoyed this session and their behind the scenes tour of Aintree Racecourse."
