The Centre has 20 horses and ponies, carefully chosen for their temperament, size and ability to work with disabled riders, and a hoist facility for mounting onto ponies is available for wheelchair users.

The Unicorn Centre also provides training courses in partnership with Middlesbrough College in horse care and management, riding and teaching.
