Supporting a riding centre

Sometimes all it takes is a friendly conversation with a Howdens customer...

Penniwells Riding School

That was the case with Jamie Smith, former manager of the Barnet depot. He was chatting with a customer, who mentioned that she was involved with Penniwells Riding Centre, a local initiative for disabled riders.

Penniwells is dedicated to providing riding opportunities to those people  - young and old - whose disabilities might otherwise prevent them from getting involved. The school's ambitions are as much about health and wellbeing as they are about competition and skill, and when Jamie Smith learned more about Penniwells' funding difficulties, he was keen to organise a donation. The £500 pledge will go towards stable repairs and new equipment.
