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.


In 2019 the Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre will celebrates its 30th anniversary. You are invited to be part of the celebrations and help support the charity to continue for another 30 years
