The Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centrewas 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.

The Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre is a very special place for many people young and old. It has now been going for over 30 years. You are invited to become part of  what we do by supporting the charity and helping it to have a long and lasting legacy for another 30 years.

Watch a clip called

'My horse and me'.

The clip shows Martin Clunes OBE Patron of WSPC, Sister Mary Joy Langdon Founder of WSPC and Nic Fiddian Green an artisit who sculptures horses heads.
