At the end of summer, the horses leave us to go on their annual holiday to a nearby farm in Barnet.
After working hard all year, giving rides to thousands of children in Pony Club, Pony Rides and Therapeutic Riding, they get to run around in big green fields and rest & relax. Having a break gives them the opportunity to unwind and come back to work refreshed and re-energised. It looks like they’re having a great time already!
Murphy, Champion and Jester will return in October, when they are reshod, groomed and settle back into regular farm life, before restarting their busy riding schedule in the autumn. We’ll keep you posted about their return and when riding resumes.
Happy holiday boys!
See you in October!
KTCF Staff and volunteers have recently won several awards for their contribution to the farm and the local community.
Farm riding teacher, Diane Probets received the Jack Petchey Foundation Outstanding Leader Award in January 2017 for her work on the farm’s Riding Therapy programme. Diane was nominated by the Marylebone Bridge School for her work which enables riding for autistic children. The award gives schools and youth organisations an opportunity to honour the dedication and commitment of staff and volunteers who go ‘the extra mile’ to support young people. We are delighted that Diane’s exceptional work over many years has been recognised. Diane is supported in the riding therapy programme by the dedicated volunteer work of Claire Probets Evans.
Diane’s win follows closely on the heels of award wins by three farm volunteers who were honoured at the Camden Volunteer Centre’s Annual Awards in November 2016.
Rachel Schwartz received well-deserved recognition as Exceptional Volunteer of 2016 for her enormous contribution as Farm Trustee Chair and Acting Director (2015 – 2016).
Melanie Chamberlain and Thomas Brennan also received Volunteer Awards for their amazing & wide-ranging contributions to the farm community and work with the animals.
