Summer Term Success

August 11, 2021 at 2:28 pm

Six pupils from St Stephen’s Primary School, who have been riding through the summer term, spent the day at Littlebrook learning the skills to pass their grade 1 and 2 Riding and Horse care certificates. The children were assisted by some of our volunteers.

The pupils had a wonderful day and learnt a lot. Many thanks go to Sally O’Neil for accommodating the group for the day thus enabling the children to enjoy this fabulous learning opportunity. Thanks also to all the volunteers for all their hard work both on the day and during the weekly lessons and to Lysa Jephcott, our inventive coach, for organising everyone.

The day finished with an award presentation. Lions Club District Governor Ian Forbes kindly came to watch the pupils take their grades and stayed to present the children with their hard earned certificates and end of year awards.

This is our first fundraising event for over a year and is very welcome. DHDS are looking for stall-holders and entries. Please see their facebook page for further details.

Welcome support from our generous friends

January 26, 2021 at 10:20 am

Although we have not had any riding sessions since last March, our ponies still need to be cared for and we are very grateful that our many generous friends have not forgotten us. The Sussex Wanderers MG Car Club have donated £1,400, East Grinstead Lions £300 and numerous other private donations total £4,377. This kindness will help us to keep our ponies fed, watered and exercised until we can start riding again. We hope this might be after Easter, for at least one school which can come as a bubble, and are keeping our fingers crossed.

A Plea for help

During these difficult times, we have no regular income, but we still have to keep our ponies. The cost of feed, bedding, exercising them is considerable and if anyone can make a donation, however small, it would be very welcome.

We now have a donation portal at Virgin Money Giving. Please click on the red button on the right to donate. Thank you in advance for your help.
