Residents at The Tithebarn in Moor Lane, Great Crosby, have been enjoying the good old outdoors this summer, most recently with a day out at the Bowlers Riding School in Formby.
On 22 June, residents enjoyed a lunch at the Bay Horse, before heading to the riding school where they received a tour of the stables, spent time with the horses, and even saw some of the horses in action with their trainers.
“The day brought back many memories for me. My husband was a farmer and we spent many holidays pony riding, so this was a very special experience for me. All the residents had a wonderful time,” says Audrey Roughley, a resident at The Tithebarn.
“Animals play an important role at The Tithebarn, providing companionship to both residents and staff. Their presence can help people to feel more comfortable and relaxed, especially for those who have had pets before they moved into the Home or spent a lot of time with animals,” says Activities Coordinator Mary Piert.
