Television star and President of the British Horse Society, Martin Clunes presents a new documentary show on Horse & Country TV, all about how equine learning can benefit people with special needs.
In ‘Martin Clunes: Riding Therapy’, the horse lover and actor heads to the Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy to meet a group of young people with learning difficulties and disabilities, whose lives have been transformed by horses.
Martin discovers the profound effect horses can have on the students at the Fortune Centre. Through learning to ride and looking after horses, they can gain essential life skills, transform their lifestyles and develop their fitness, as well as learn valuable skills to help them become more independent.
Martin also gets the chance to find out more about the different types of riding therapy available at the Centre, including vaulting. He even has a go himself on one of the Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy’s equine residents.
Martin Clunes: Riding Therapy is a half-hour one-off documentary that premieres exclusively on Horse & Country’s online platform, H&C Play, on Tuesday 21 March 2017, and will be shown on Sky channel 253 at 9pm on Tuesday 28 March.
