Providing therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities.
The Magpie Centre, RDA West Norfolk
Our horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities.
We offer activities such as riding and carriage driving to all age groups and, wherever possible, to people with any disability. We also offer ‘Tea with a Pony’ for those living with dementia or other disabilities and Equine Assisted Learning Therapy (EALT) a programme encouraging interaction between horses and people to promote mental well being.
We have been carrying out our life-changing activities at our Wallington Hall location for over 30 years, and we take great pride in the exceptional standard of our instructors and volunteers.
We rely on voluntary help, as well as donations and legacies to deliver our services.
It costs around £150,000 a year to keep the Magpie Centre running and much of this money comes from small donations made by members of the public and local businesses.
You can make a donation via the PayPal Giving Fund.
Our goal is to give each rider, whatever their ability, the opportunity to be in control of their pony within a supportive and structured environment and perhaps most importantly to have fun.
Equine assisted learning therapy is a tailor-made, six week programme designed to promote mental well being through the relationship you can build with the horse.
It costs around £150,000 a year to keep the Centre running, much of which comes from small donations made by members of the public and local businesses.
