Scouts go horse riding in the Ashdown Forest
Posted on 8 May 2017
For the 4th Year our Scout Section have experienced horse riding as part of their Spring camp.
This is always a popular event and one that is often over subscribed, this year we had 20 Scouts riding over the two days. Not only do they find this a great fun activity, it’s a great lesson in over coming personal fears and pushing your own limits. Whilst on camp we always use the East View Riding Centre, which is a family run stables with brilliant horses for all abilities. Being a family run farm with family owned horses, the Scouts are always guaranteed to receive a warm and friendly welcome and the horses are in great condition.
We opt for the “Farm” ride that includes an hour in the saddle riding over open paddocks, through bluebell woods, over streams with a bit of trotting and some cantering if the Scouts feel up to it.
The 8th Tonbridge Scouts would recommend the East View Riding Centre for both children and adults, if you want to experience what our Scouts get up to and fancy a go at horse riding then please have a look at their website and give them a call. http://eastviewridingcentre.uk Feel free to mention that it was us that recommended your visit.
Well done to all our Scouts that went riding this year, below are just a few pictures of some of the Scouts that went riding.
