Our Success Stories
E4E is touching many lives; not only those who are riding, but their families, and the wider community.
Please join with us in celebrating our riders' successes.
"There is so much I would like to say that I just can't put into words. We are so grateful for everything E4E has done for my daughter's self-confidence and anxiety. She had extremely high anxiety, and separation anxiety, and sensory issues that led to 8 weeks off school, and not attending any other groups... except E4E horse riding sessions. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts"
My son loves his horse riding session; the guides and instructors are always really good! - Sharon, 2017
My daughter absolutely loves coming to her lessons. They have helped with her confidence, problem solving and risk taking. Katie adores her coach, Jamie, and the way she teaches her. Feedback from her school teacher is that Katie talks about horse riding all the time. Thank you for providing such a great opportunity for my daughter which is the highlight of her week. - Yvonne, 2017
Brydie spent two years riding with RDA, but was unable to keep riding with them. Brydie never speaks without a prompt, but after riding last week, she hopped into the car and said “I love horse riding”. - Feb 2014
Erin represents Special Olympics Hibiscus Coast in equestrian. She loves dressage but has struggled to be able to go to competitions. E4E has been able to support Erin in providing extra coaching lessons and supported her at the Warkworth Dressage competition. She was awarded 3rd place!
Takara (aged 11) was being bullied at school. Throughout her 10 lessons her confidence and self esteem increased enough for her to learn to put into practise skills she was being taught in how to react and deal with the issues.
Paul, loves horses and riding, but hadn’t ridden since he was a teenager at Riding for the Disabled (RDA). Paul had a fear of heights, so he took eight lessons before being able to get on the pony; each week getting a step closer. He now regularly competes at our ribbon days.
