Unicorn Centre to go Western
3:54pm Friday 1st March 2013 in Sport
A RIDING centre is hosting a demonstration on how to ride like they do in theWild West next week.
The Riding for the Disabled Association’s Unicorn Centre at Hemlington, near Middesbrough holds a Western Riding Demonstration on Monday, March at 7pm.
Western riding expert Emma Chapman from Hill Top Equestrian, at Masham, will be using her American paint mare and her American quarter horse to demonstrate the differences between English and Western riding, including sliding stops and 360 spins.
As well as competing in Western and English classes on her own horses, Emma has an excellent reputation in the local area for working with a wide range of horses.
Specialising in untouched, young and remedial horses, she works on the psychology and underlying reasons for behaviour in order to gain trust, respect and understanding which willlead to workable solutions for the benefit of both horse and rider.
Unicorn Centre Manager Mrs Claire Pitt said: “A Western riding demonstration will be a first for the Unicorn Centre, so we’re very excited about watching Emma and her horses.
All proceeds from the evening will be going into the Centre funds, so we’re hoping for an excellent turn-out.”
Tickets are available in advance at the Unicorn Centre, priced £3.50 for adults, £2.00 for children 16yearsandunder, or family ticket £10 for two adults and two children. Telephone 01642-576222 to book.
