Aldersbrook Riding School
Aldersbrook Riding School Ltd has been in operation since June 1974 and so have actually been an approved Riding School for 39 years. In 2007 Alderbrook Riding School received an award from the British Horse Society for operating as an approved riding school for 25 years or more. This award was actually received on Ida Thorne’s (the Proprietress) 70th birthday, so it was a double celebration.
Aldersbrook Riding School and Livery Stables has provided riding facilities for the local community for 40 years and the recent acquisition of an indoor riding arena. During the Summer many children have enjoyed pony mornings, holiday weeks and hacking on Wanstead Flats and The Forest, culminating in their annual Bank Holiday show. It is very much hoped that the Riding School will survive the ever increasing financial demands and be able to continue to provide the community with a local riding school.
