COVID - 19 UPDATE
The team at Wyvenhoe Equestrian Club are sad to announce that as of the 5th January 2021 we have had to shut our doors once again.
The regulations issued on the 4th January 2021 stated that riding centres must shut with immediate effect. All bookings will be cancelled and payments held on account where possible.
We will keep you updated and hopefully we will see you soon!
The Wyvenhoe Team
Your local riding club needs you!
Wyvenhoe Equestrian Club was established in 1972. For almost 50 years the club has been dedicated to its customers and ponies alike, striving to provide great service to clients and quality of like to its inhabitants.
Over the years the club has seen many changed and naturally seen clients and horses come and go. But 2020 proved to be its most challenging year to date. Earlier last year the club closed its doors as the first lockdown took place. These were uncertain times but through determination the Wyvnehoe team managed to maintain the site and quality of life of its ponies whilst under immense financial pressure. In November 2020 the second lockdown hit. This proved more challenging as seasonal changes makes working with horses even more difficult.
The first lockdown took place at a time of year when the weather was pretty fantastic, which meant the pasture at the site was at its best. Now that winter is here the ponies more than ever will be relying upon other forms of feed and of course spending more time in their stables.
So we find ourselves yet again in a difficult situation, where are costs outweigh the clubs income, and for us the welfare of our horses is the most important thing. For this reason we are hoping to raise funds which will go towards horse feed, bedding and medicine.
We appreciate this is a difficult time for everyone, but if you are able to make any donation, we all would be incredibly grateful.
Thank you from The Wyvenhoe Team.
