I am a more mature gent. and started riding 14yrs. ago at matchmoor riding centre with my wife,the instruction we got enabled us to go on to own horses of our own, we have had some fine hacks out from matchmoor and some hard but good lesson's.I have always admired Sue for the way she has run her riding centre if it was not for her a lot of people would never have been able to afford to ride.

I have the previledge to visit the matchmoor lane riding school every year on my visit to Horwich.
As a Malaysian horse rider I was made welcome by the owner and staff at the centre . The horses and ponies are gentle and well cared for.
I look forward to my visit again this coming November and December.
