Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre was founded in the summer of 1989.
Over the past 30 years a great deal has been achieved.
1989 First Open day was held in the pouring rain! The Mayor of Hammersmith & Fulham came and presented rosettes to the riders.
1989 First Christmas. the ponies were stolen by some gypsies. We managed to get them back but owing to no stables or security they were locked into the local sports stadium girls changing rooms.
1990 First Easter the gypsies were back and attempts were made to once agin steal the ponies. The ponies were offered security in a local school where they spent the holidays locked in the netball courts.
1990 Homemade stables were built by local volunteers and a fence put up around what is now the stable yard.
1990 At this time we had no electricity, toilets, telephone and the water supply was from a stand pipe that used to be used for the fair ground.
