Scotts of Thrapston is delighted to be teaming up with the Ride High charity in 2018.  Ride High is a children’s charity that builds self-esteem and confidence in children by teaching them to ride and care for horses.  The team at Scotts will work in partnership with a group of young people from Ride High to transform a stable in their new premises in the centre of Milton Keynes.

We are excited about the opportunity to work with this equestrian based charity.  We hope that our installation team and the young people will both learn new skills from working together on this project.  The children will hopefully learn so much from their involvement in the project and ultimately restoring the site will be welcomed by clients of the riding school and will, therefore, generate more profit for the charity.  Scotts has also committed to sponsoring two children to attend Ride High for one year.

Ride High couldn’t be happier to have the support of Scotts. Last year the charity took over a site now known as the Ride High Equestrian Centre. As well as it being the charity’s new permanent home the riding school is also open to the public and all the profits will support the charity.

Ride High supports children that face a variety of challenges that make everyday life a struggle. The children are disengaged and suffer from a severe lack of self-confidence, most are underperforming at, or not attending school. Ride High offers a unique and innovative approach to engage these children. Children attend Ride High for up to 12 months. By the time they leave over 90% are thriving in full-time school, college or work experience.

We will be sharing stories and photographs from our association with Ride High, via our ‘Stable Experts‘ blog throughout the year.  To find out more about the Ride High charity, visit their website.
