Chigwell Riding Trust was the first riding centre for people with special needs in the world and has been established in Chigwell for 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 look forward to meeting you on Sunday 5th October, anytime between 10.30am and 4.30pm.
Abridge Golf & Country Club Ladies Charity Golf Day raised an incredible £17,000. This wonderful donation will be going towards our new horse transport. Thank You.
Our annual Barn Dance with the fabulous Bucksaw Bucket Band was a great success. As usual with this event there is a 3 minute video to watch just here. Also as usual it has a nasty red colour to it because of our lighting and useless cameraman.
A 30 minute video of odds and ends from the last 50+ years was played all day on Open Day. Here it is on Vimeo
A great success. Lovely to see so many people from years gone by. Overwhelming generosity, £6000 and still counting.
