The new indoor riding arena at Orchard Farm Equestrian, near Skegness ,has been officially opened by British show jumping coach of the year Phillipa Curry.

The arena, one of the largest in Lincolnshire, is suitable for beginners enjoying their first lesson to riders competing at the highest level.

Profits from the evening went to charity, raising over £350 for the Break Away Foundation and £135 for the local Riding for the Disabled group. Orchard Farm Equestrian is part of Orchard Farm Holidays at West End, Hogsthorpe.

Phillipa, who is pictured giving a master class in training show jumping horses, said: “Orchard Farm really does need to be commended for bringing together a wide range of people to get an insight into the world of show jumping training.”
