The Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre
Founded in 1989
The Centre is a registered charity providing riding and equine therapy for children, specialising in those with special needs and physical disabilities.
Over the years the Pony Centre has grown from 3 ponies and hand built stables to a professional establishment with a traditional stable yard that homes the 20 horses and ponies.
There is also a large indoor riding arena built in 1994 through the BBC Challenge Anneka.
The Charity is run by a small team of very experienced and qualified staff who are supported by many dedicated volunteers.
The Mission is to improve the quality of the lives of the children and young people who attend the Centre.
To encourage children to remain innocent children by giving them the opportunities of learning to ride and care for ponies in a safe and supportive environment.
Projects for 2017
The first is to source more professional vaulting equipment for the recently formed vaulting group. Vaulting is known as gymnastics on horseback and is an activity that both able and disabled children can take part in. The goal is to raise £3,000
The second project is to take a team of young people and the six Camargue horses to the Buckham Fair on 20th August. At the Fair the children and horses will take part in several 'Dancing White Horse Displays.
This project will cost £3,000. £1.800 for transport & £1,200 for kit for the 12 riders.
