BACKGROUND

Gransha Equestrian Centre are an approved BHS riding school established in 1984, who have an extensive range of facilities and offer regular riding lessons for both beginners and more advanced competitors. The applicant Adrienne Stuart approached DRAP for funding to create an all-weather path from the car parking area to the field where they created eight obstacles including jumps, steps, ditches, which will have all weather landings and approaches.

ACTIVITIES

DRAP funding enabled the Gransha Equestrian Centre to construct an all-weather cross-country training facility. These included installing 8 cross country fences, drainage, hard standing for storage, a link road, fence to car park, 5 gates with ironmongery, and landscaping and planting for the site.
