Horse Riding and Racquet Sports

Horseback Riding - There are many branches of Riding for the Disabled throughout the country and they are more than happy to help amputees ride.

Racquet Games - If you are a leg amputee, the first thing you must learn to do when playing racquet games is side-step towards your good leg side. Once you have mastered this, you will find that you can play squash, badminton, tennis and other court games almost as skilfully wearing your artificial leg as with normal legs. When you first start playing, you will probably find that it is hard to move quickly round the court, but with practice, you can become quite expert. Study the game to find ways of increasing your skill and saving energy.
