Who is Sandy Lane Equestrian?

Sandy Lane Equestrian is a registered charity and member of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), providing disabled people with the opportunity to ride and enjoy horse riding in a fun and safe environment.

The Challenge

Following Sandy Lane’s rapid growth, Advanced Handling was approached to design and build a solution for lifting and mounting disabled riders on to horseback. Previously, an existing lift Sandy Lane sourced had proven to be unreliable and had to be replaced with a more dependable unit. Additionally, it also had to be supplied within a tight timeframe to avoid disrupting activity for RDA pupils.

The Solution

Advanced Handling designed and built two Lift Tables for use outside the centres’ ‘All weather’ arena each with a capacity of 500kg and lifting to a height of 1300mm. A key feature of these specially designed Scissor Lifts are the heavy-duty welded safety gates with 150mm high kick boards fitted to both sides, they are interlocking into the control system of the lift so the platform will not raise or lower when the gates are open.

The Benefits

Advanced Handling worked alongside Rose and Carl Tommons, founders of Sandy Lane Equestrian, to ensure the equipment supplied achieved all expectations and also met key health and safety regulations.

Since introducing the lifts, Sandy Lane has been able to increase efficiency with this quick and hassle-free process for lifting RDA pupils onto horseback and dramatically eliminate staff manual handling risks.

We are very happy with the service and products that Advanced Handling have provided and the lifts are a far superior system to what we had before.
