The centre is managed by Cath Wrigley BET Centre Manager, who has many years experience of working with horses. All rides are escorted by BHS and BET qualified staff who all hold their Riding & Road Safety certificates, are qualified first aiders and have undertaken BHS Child Protection Training. As our guides are all specially trained for the industry, you will always feel comfortable and confident whilst in their care. They are all long serving employees of Murthwaite Green so know the rides and the horses very well! They are helpful, professional, friendly and always ready for a good chat.
