Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

A NEW sta­ble block has been opened by Bri­tish Par­a­lympic dres­sage star Natasha Baker for Cotswold Rid­ing for the Dis­abled.

The new block, based at Chel­tenham Race­course, was fin­ished on sched­ule, within bud­get and re­place half a dozen old stalls next to the rid­ing school.

Claire Jenk­ins, Cotswold’s gen­eral man­ager, said, “The new se­cure sta­bles will al­low us to house ponies close to the school overnight, which means our vol­un­teers will no longer have to walk them back to their fields in the dark and rain. “This will re­ally help our af­ter-school clubs to run smoothly what­ever the weather.”
