Did you know there is a Horse Riding stable in Loughborough Junction?

Leave a comment

When I first heard that there was a horse riding stable in Loughborough Junction, I couldn’t believe my ears! Not only has the stable been in operation for several years, but it has just received funding of £79,000 for a new riding arena in Wyck Gardens, Loughborough Junction. The funds were awarded through ITV’s Million Pound Giveaway programme, and will mean that much needed work can commence on the site.

This is an amazing project for the area and one that I am sure many of you will want to be involved in. It scares me that I knew nothing of this stables, and I’m curious as to what other amazing projects there are in Loughborough Junction. Please let us know about them!

Ebony Horse Club, The Loughborough Community Centre 105 Angell Road Brixton London SW9 7PD
Tel: 07985 854374 Email: info@ebonyhorseclub.org.uk
Patron: Valerie Shawcross C.B.E.

Ebony Horse Club provides riding for all children in Coldharbour Ward, Brixton, London, aged eight to nineteen years who would otherwise have no means of accessing the sport, but specialises in children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, especially those excluded from school.

The club offers riding, horse care lessons and visits to relevant places of interest including the British Racing School, Newmarket, museums and horse shows.

Whenever possible the club also offers children access to other sporting activities which they may not otherwise have an opportunity to experience. To date these include rowing, fencing and adventure weekends in the country.

The club endeavours to get children out into the countryside as much as possible and each year the top ten riders go on a four day trip to ride in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales.
