What We Do

The Cavalier Centre is a fully accessible state of the art equestrian facility located just outside Much Wenlock, in the beautiful Shropshire countryside. The centre offers inclusive horse-based activities such as riding, carriage driving, vaulting (gymnastics on horseback), hippotherapy (physio on horseback) and horse care, all supported by a wonderful army of volunteers. It also has a range of other programmes and activities that help people develop life skills, emotional intelligence and wellbeing.
Lives Touched
I often describe the Cavalier Centre as my “happy place” so if you’d like to spend time with ponies and make a real difference to someone else’s life then do give it a go. It could become your happy place too! 
'My favourite Pony is Archie, because he is cheeky'.
The Cavalier Centre very much relies upon the support of volunteers but, speaking as a volunteer, I cannot put into words how rewarding I find the time that I spend there is. Becoming a volunteer there has been a decision that I do not regret for one minute and I hope to continue my work there for many years to come.
‘I love all the horses at the Cavalier Centre but my stand out favourite is Freddie as he is the one that I ride and have a really good bond with, he is a gentle giant.’
It’s good that the Steps programme is here because it gives people who are struggling and who have challenges a chance to grow in confidence, build communication, work as a team and have fun. 
'Favourite moment? - every time a rider gets 'something' no matter what - to see it click is the best feeling.'
The Centre could not run without our incredible army of volunteers.  From supporting in lessons, caring for the horses to groundwork or cleaning they are integral to our everyday operation.
