Speaker Tracy Steel. Host Pat Emmerson

Tue, Mar 16th 2021 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Tracy is from Washington Riding Centre and joined us to give an update on how the Centre is doing, especially during Covid-19


Tracy explained that she offered educational support with schools; changing life through horses. She was awarded coach of the year in 2019. She has RDA Grade 4 in Dressage to music.

The Centre only has half of the usual number of horses at present, with the others having been 'let' to contacts and supporters to look after.  Thus they cannot offer a full service, so many of the staff are on furlough and she is just half time.

However, they have had the opportunity to develop some things on the site, including a sensory garden.

She took us on a tour of the whole site using her phone and it was very interesting to see how things have developed since we last visited some years ago.  They usually employ 10 others and have about 120 riders per week in normal times.  There is a lot of voluntary help, too, for which they are very grateful.

Tracy offered to arrange a visit when this is possible, hopefully later in the year.
