Conquest Centre is a specialist equine centre dedicated  to improving the health and well-being of people with disabilities.

Disabled people often struggle to find the chance to take part in inclusive sports and activities. Horse-riding and other horse-based activities can offer these opportunities and research shows they have real positive impact on physical and mental health, social skills and self confidence.

Based in Somerset, the centre offers a whole range of activities, from riding and carriage driving to horse care and sensory work . As well as teaching people how to ride and work with horses, the charity also provides training for qualifications, volunteering and work experience opportunities in the stables and the cafe.

 

In 2017, the Masonic Charitable Foundation donated £4,000 to Conquest Centre

Conquest Centre is delighted to have received a magnificent grant of £4,000 from the Masonic Charitable Foundation!  Our horse-based activity sessions improve the lives of hundreds of children and adults with disabilities and additional needs each year.  We depend on generous supporters such as the Foundation to continue with our important work and this grant is a really tremendous boost to our funds!
