About the Equestrian Centre
What services are provided and where?
We provide our services from two locations in Cherry Orchard. Most of our services operate from the Equine Centre which is a large campus sitting on 12 acres. Our youth services, training centre and equestrian centre are all based at The Equine Centre.
Our second premises is located at 83 Cherry Orchard Crescent and is home to our Blue Door service which provides family supports and training programmes.
What our facilites provide?
The equestrian facilities are very impressive including a large indoor and a large outdoor riding arena; a cross country training facility; a lunge pen, a sensory riding trail; 26 stables in an American style barn; and training rooms.
Facilities in our main block include several dedicated youth-work spaces which serve as multi-purpose rooms featuring pool tables, table tennis, TV/video games, arts and crafts, games and so forth and serve for drop-ins, group work, summer programmes and much more.
We have several dedicated classrooms and tutorial rooms used by our Community Training Centre including a dedicated IT suite. We also have a fully equipped catering standard kitchen which provides hot meals for all trainees, staff and young people engaging in programmes each day.
Finally, we have a modern multi-purpose training room which has recently been upgraded to enable us to host online and hybrid video conference meetings. This is an excellent asset which facilitates staff, board members and service users to continue to engage fully in our day-to-day activities without having to be present on site.
Many of our facilities are available to local groups to use and we also are in a position to rent them out when they are not in use. Catering packages also available upon request.

The future of Cherry Orchard
We are currently working on ambitious plans to build an extension to the Equine Centre to expand the range of services and programmes we provide in the community.
The plans are at an advanced stage and we hope to start work on them in 2023.
