Welcome to The Horse Rangers Association - a children's charity which teaches horsemanship and management of the animals. It’s not a riding school but an organisation which benefits youngsters, of all backgrounds and abilities, from the age of 8 years in their own personal development.
We launched our 60th year celebrations on March 1st with our annual Founder's Day remembering Raymond Gordon who founded HRA at Shepperton.

Our first Jack Petchey Award winner of 2014 has been announced. Congratulations to Horse Ranger Matthew Wright. He joined Horse Rangers in 2012

You'll be seeing lots of Press coverage of one of our first events to mark our six decades. The Horse Rangers' 60th Anniversary Charity Cycle is taking place on 30 March
It’s not a race but a fun-day out for the family starting at Hampton Court Palace and finishing at The London Irish Rugby Club at Sunbury on Thames.
There are two route options: the Royal Park hopper is a 25 mile event which can be enjoyed by the whole family who prefer a relaxed ride on mostly quiet roads. The ride will take you through Bushy Park onto quiet roads in Teddington and across the river to Richmond Park.
The High Wycombe charity challenge is a longer 75 mile ride for the serious rider. It has a British cycling grading of 3. Please support us and find sponsors. Click here to register now. Click on the photo to enlarge

Solly and Blackie are the first to christen the new shelter. Bar holders are done so it can now be used as stables over night.
The former mayor of Richmond, Cllr Rita Palmer, has presented the Horse Rangers with a super-sized cheque made out for £13,512.28 following her choosing us as her charity of the year. See Press coverage
