Clwyd Special Riding Centre is a registered charity that offers a variety of equine experiences for people with additional needs. Set in over 30 acres with 24 horses of all sizes and types, the aim of CSRC is to provide a beneficial experience to all persons through riding, carriage driving, equestrian vaulting, equine learning and therapy and hippotherapy.

Nestled in the Clwydian Hills, Clwyd Special Riding Centre has been in operation for over 30 years and has a range of facilities including indoor arena, outdoor arena, a countryside challenge activity area, a 2 kilometre track with water splash and picnic area an activity and learning barn and a round pen.

Project CELT – Centre for Equine Learning and Therapy is an additional area built with a grant from the Big Lottery Fund. This project provides opportunities for persons with complex needs who may benefit from equine learing and/or equine therapy.

The Centre has a fully simulated mechanical horse with interactive screen where riders can experience horse movement whilst riding a dressage test or cantering along a beach. It can also assess balance and ability and offer a progression report of balance development. The Centre also has a ceiling track hoist, smart board, height adjustable work stations and sink plus an extensive range of communication aids. Holiday accommodation is also available. A purpose built, 18 bedded accessible building is set within the grounds and allows for people with additional needs to enjoy an equine based holiday at any time of the year.
