Cardiff Riding School is holding an open day this weekend

The event, which begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday 21st May will feature a show jumping show and musical drill ride by staff, and marks the opening of a brand new outdoor school made possible with support from the Friends of Cardiff.

Cardiff Riding School Principal Gloria Garrington said: ‘We are really looking forward to welcoming some faces for what we hope will be a really fun day.

“We are delighted with the new outdoor school and very grateful to the Board and Friends of Cardiff Riding School for making this possible.

“It’s going to make so much difference – it gives us a great space which we can use all year round for lessons, it means we can run competitions alongside our normal lessons, it will help improve the welfare of the horses , we can offer a better livery package for people with their own horses. We can’t wait for people to see it.
