The open day is estimated to have raised £900 for the centre.

Visitors were treated to a display by Susi Rogers-Hartley, a paralympic rider, who gave a demonstration before popping over 3ft jumps.

RDA rider Ainsley Calvert and his horse Ruby showed off their cantering and jumping skills.

Another highlight was the display by former para carriage driving champion Mick Ward. He teamed up with the centre’s new horse Teddy to whizz around the course.

Most improved rider awards were presented to David Mazure and Max Williams on the day

A spokesman from the centre said: “How wonderful it was to see so many supporting the Magpie Centre. People were interested in the displays which shows people how much fun our riders have while benefitting therapeutically.”
