Chigwell Riding Trust was the first ever riding centre for people with special needs and has been established in Chigwell for almost sixty years. Riding instruction is given to people of all ages and abilities.
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.

The pictures above are from the 31st May when we took three horses, one pony and five riders to the Greater London Regional Qualifier. This was held at Penniwells RDA Centre. Those who qualify will then compete at the RDA National Championships to be held at Hartpury in Gloucestershire in July.

Please consider supporting us

The cost of providing riding lessons far exceeds the fees that we charge. The wonderful facilities that we have and the services that we provide, both to our riders and to the community have all been financed by the generosity of people just like you. Please help us to continue in these difficult times. Thank you.
