Brixton Ebony Horse Club has Monarch Stables

The Ebony Horse Club in Brixton are celebrating their 1st year in the new purpose built Equestrian Centre, which has enabled the young people of Lambeth to have th opportunity to ride. The Charity was  set up in 2006 but until a year ago the young people had to be driven to other Riding centres in London, now they have there own base enabling many more people to have the opportunity to ride.

We hope that they are enjoying the Summer Holidays at the stables and also watching the other Equestrian activity in Greenwich Park at the Olympics, Team GB will certainly be inspiring many young people to take up riding in the future.

Monarch Equestrian complete Olympic Legacy Stables at Greenwich

          OLYMPIC LEGACY  PROJECT       

Monarch Equestrian are proud to have been chosen to build the stables that will form part of the Olympic Legacy at Greenwich.  The Monarch Barn at Shooters Hill Road  houses 20 stables and will be used for local people after the games.

Despite the poor weather conditions Monarch were able to get the Barn up on schedule, with the remainder of the site being completed after the Games.

The Monarch Barn nearing completion.

The Monarch Barn and the rest of the Equestrian Centre has been jointly funded by Hadlow College who will be running the centre in conjunction with their Equestrian Department, together with  Greenwich Council and the ODA and LOCOG.

We are looking forward to seeing the whole project completed and in use for the local people of Greenwich, hopefully many will have been inspired by the excellent job our Eventing Team did gaining a silver medal.

Check back and we hope to have further photos when the site has been completed in September.
