IT helps put troubled teenagers on the straight and narrow through games and exercises with horses.

But Success Unbridled could be saddling up for the final time if the business is unable to find a new field.

The not-for-profit business, which helps youngsters with physical and mental disabilities as well as behavioural problems, rents a four-acre field in Old Lindley.

But because of exceptionally wet weather over the last 12 months the field has been permanently waterlogged and is unsafe for visitors.

Now business owner Heidi Dawson is looking to rent a new field and find a new home for Gertie, a three-year-old Shetland pony, Zahra, a five-year-old Arabian horse and Billy, a 10-year-old Welsh Cob.

Success Unbridled has interest from several schools but Ms Dawson says she has had to turn away business because of the condition of the field.

Ms Dawson says her landlord had planned to have drainage installed in the field but had been prevented from doing so by bad weather.

Now her animals are unable to access their stables because of deep mud on the land in front of them and have to use the trees for shelter.

She said: “I’ve fallen in the field loads of times and the ponies have hurt themselves a couple of times.

“My landlord is lovely but the peculiarity of the land – it’s clay and on a very steep slope – means all of the water drains into the land.

“You have to walk through two fields to get there which involves walking down a steep, slippery slope and some of our clients have balance issues anyway.”

Ms Dawson says she would like a field of five acres or larger with vehicular access.

She said: “Anything in a reasonable state, from fairly rough to pristine, will do.

“If I don’t find anywhere I may have to pack up the business.”
