PonyAxeS at the Summer School 2018

Tribe of Doris welcomes all people of all abilities. For this reason 2018 will be the year when Tribe of Doris will be the first event in the world to provide additional help for wheelchair users with the help of PonyAxeS. Simon Mulholland will be on hand and with the help of his pony Obama will make sure all wheelchair users can use the site and surrounding grounds with an Ibex pony drawn wheelchair friendly vehicle. Wheelchair users can travel around in 100% safety, whilst still in their wheelchair due to the revolutionary quick release system. PonyAxeS is about access rather than a horse drawn activity although it’s a great way to get around. None wheelchair users who have mobility issues will also be able to use the service. When not in use for the less mobile there will be opportunities for everyone to try it out. For more information please visit https://ponyaxes.com/safety/
