Freemasons put disabled horse riders in the saddle with £10,000 grant

by Mark Andrews, Express & Star, 30th January 2023)

The Cavalier Centre, a charity-run equestrian and riding centre in Much Wenlock, has received a grant from the Masonic Charitable Foundation to expand its operations.

The centre, which uses 14 horses and ponies, provides support to disabled people from across the West Midlands through horse-based activities. The center serves 140 regular riders and carriage drivers and 100 people through ad hoc activities.

It offers a range of programs to improve physical, mental, and emotional health, including quiet sessions with ponies, therapeutic pony-care sessions, riding and carriage-driving sessions, a confidence-building program, and regular “tea with a pony” sessions.

The grant, spread over two years, will part-fund the salary of a staff member, allowing the centre to reach further into the community and offer its services to more people.

The manager of the Cavalier Centre, Rachel Lambert-Jones, expressed her gratitude for the recognition of their work by the Masonic Charitable Foundation.
