Chigwell Riding Trust was the first riding centre for people with special needs in the world and has been established in Chigwell for over fifty years. Riding instruction is given to people of all ages and abilities. The riding centre has approximately 160 riders each week.
As one of the leading specialised riding centres in the country Chigwell Riding Trust not only benefits people with special needs but also the entire community, giving opportunities for volunteering, school participation and practical experience for children and adults working with people and animals.
We have cancelled Open Day because of the tremendous amount of rain that has recently fallen. We have to use our grazing fields for car parking for this event and they are waterlogged.
Glastonbury can cope. We cannot.
However we will be holding our 2016 Open Day later in the year on Sunday 2nd October, at the same time as our Art and Craft Fair.
We look forward to meeting you in October.
Seven riders entered the Regional Qualifier held at Penniwells RDA Centre and seven riders qualified for the Hartpury Finals later in the summer. A great result with 5 firsts and 2 seconds.
Thank you to Sarah and all her staff and volunteers at Penniwells RDA Centre who worked so hard to make the day such a success.
