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 Centre 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.
The project for 2015 is to develop a classroom where children can receive specilised therapy. In addition to the classroom the aim is to also develop a jumping lane and an activity track for riders.
