The more money we raise, the longer we can last in these difficult times. Any excess funds raised will go towards funding young people to join in with our Alternative Provision called Changing Lives Through Horses or Dogs


The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain time for us and many other small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for us all to survive in the future. 

Carrington Riding Centre has been providing equine activities for over 50 years and currently looks after over 70 horses and ponies, 9 dogs and 5 cats. The riding school is the hub of many young people's social lives and very often, is their only release in life and their very own safe place to be.

We don't just see ourselves as a riding school, but more of a community village where many, many community members have made life long friends.

We have the most amazing team made up of 35 staff member who include instructors, grooms, lecturers, admin and cafe staff and maintenance men. They are all dedicated to the longevity of our school and their passion is always very obvious.

Without wages, our weekly expenses are still extremely significant and although we have some reserves, these are depleting quicker than expected.

We are asking that if you can afford to support us in anyway, it will help us through these very difficult times and all funds will be used towards the keep of the ponies and all of their needs
