Charity information

The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy (FCRT)

The FCRT works with horses to teach young people life skills... Young people whose educational needs cannot be met in their local area and for whom the Local Authority funds places in independent specialist provision like the FCRT. Young people with a range of difficulties and disabilities join the residential FETH Course where it is not all about learning about horses, but where horses are a means of learning how to get on with other people, manage money, develop work skills and become fitter.

Founded 1976

  • Mission statement

    The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy's mission is to enable horse-motivated students with special needs to relate more successfully to others and to have greater and more appropriate control over their own lives.

    This is done through their involvement with horses. This use of horses, to enable young people to learn and develop, is the core of our work. It is the reason for The Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy's existence and has been the mission since the foundation of the work in 1976. It will remain the mission and our unique offer as a specialist independent provider.
