Riverside has great plans for improvement and expansion of its operation, with more horses, more facilities and more horsey fun for more people.

The past few months have been a little tumultuous as regular riders at Riverside will know that Mrs White will reduce her day to day involvement of the riding school as part of her retirement plan. She has a book to get to the Publishers!

Riverside has a new Manager, Lauren Lawley, who was previously an instructor with us, and has been a manager and coach at a Dressage barn in the USA for the last 4 years. Lauren returned in May to have her little boy Hudson in June, and is now back with us Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Mrs White’s son Brian has joined the Board of Directors and will provide day to day support to our new Manager.

Hopefully the toughest part is behind us now with the installation of new management, as we prepare our expansion and development plans for the school.

  • the purchase of new horses,
  • upgrading yards and fences,
  • upgrading lights on one arena and installing lights on the second arena
  • installing dust mitigation sprinklers on the second arena
  • a major revamp of the reception area, including demolition of the old mine workshops adjoining the big shed, and installation of a new office building and employees tack storage.
  • development of an online and over-the-phone payment systems
  • just to name a few….
