Chigwell Riding Trust was the first ever riding centre for people with special needs and has been established in Chigwell for over fifty years. Riding instruction is given to people of all ages and abilities. The riding centre has approximately 160 riders each week.

As one of the leading specialised riding centres in the country Chigwell Riding Trust not only benefits people with special needs but also the entire community, giving opportunities for volunteering, school participation and practical experience for children and adults working with people and animals.

This website has only just gone live and is in the very early stages. We will have lots more stuff on it. Please let me know if there is anything that does not work as you would expect. Thank you.
