At LGRCD we are always in need of volunteers particularly during the week this could be to help with the horses, assisting riders, and any voluntary help from handy men or women would be greatly appreciated. This could include painting a wall, fixing a leaky tap, ragworting a field, mending a fence, replacing a tile, mowing the grass etc. We are desperately looking for able volunteers to assist. Just a few hours a month would be greatly appreciated, or to help out when other volunteers are on holiday etc.
Leybourne Grange Riding Centre for the disabled is a registered charity and as such we are always looking for ways to raise funds to keep this much needed and much loved charity within our community. With continually rising costs of the day to day running and no help whatsoever from government funding. Without your support we would not be able to continue.
We are sometimes looking for horses on long term loan to be used in our riding school. The horses and ponies do not just do riding lessons, they hack out within our grounds, no roadwork involved and some lessons take place in our jumping paddock.
Our adoption scheme for voluntary helpers gives the horses more one to one time. But as stated previously the horse or pony taken on loan, must be very safe. Different horses required for different needs. All horses are taken on a 6 week trial basis to ensure the horse, the riding school and the owner are all happy with the agreement.
