Big Investment at Cannington Equestrian Centre (September 2009)

Bridgwater College's Equestrian Centre at Cannington has been the receiver of a big investment recently - for resurfacing the outdoor arena.

The arena measures 50m x 40m and the new wax track surface means that the facility benefits from good drainage, a solid base and a sound surface for riding lessons and jumping.

"We are extremely pleased with this investment at the Equestrian Centre",says Yard Manager, Pepsi Kohler."It means we are now able to use the outdoor arena for riding and jumping lessons, as well as hiring it out to clubs and individuals for use outside of the College needs."

The Equestrian Centre is a British Horse Society approved riding establishment and is used by students of Bridgwater College as well as being open to the public - catering for all riding abilities. Led by the Yard Manager Pepsi Kohler, the Centre offers riding and jumping lessons and specialist instruction in dressage and show jumping.

Stable management courses and holiday activities are also available, as well as hire of the facilities - the indoor school and menage, dressage boards and show jumps. Stables can be rented for the day, or for overnight stays, and staff at the Centre can also look after your horse while you are away on holiday!
