British Blind Sport and Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) are proud to launch a new educational resource, designed to support visually impaired (VI) people who take part in equestrian sport and activities.

National charities, British Blind Sport and the RDA are working in partnership to better understand the needs of VI people when accessing equestrian sport. With support from Sport England, the two organisations have collaborated on a research project to identify new insight about the barriers to taking part in horse riding that people with a visual impairment can face, and to better understand the support that coaches feel they need, in order to deliver equestrian activities for VI people with confidence.

Insight gathered from the research project has been used to produce a new educational resource, titled ‘A Guide to Delivering Equestrian Activities for Visually Impaired People’.
