Former model, Lisa Gregory, will be celebrating a dream come true when she throws open the doors of her equestrian centre to the public on Saturday, 22nd April.
Eight years ago, Lisa began planning the redevelopment of her Cannock Chase Trekking Centre, near Penkridge, aiming to provide
the best possible facilities for her riders and also for visitors to the Chase to enjoy.
Apart from a new stable block the project is complete and visitors to the Centre can now enjoy food and drink in a ranch-style
lodge building with views out to the Chase. The Centre also now boasts a large indoor riding arena where riding lessons are held.
“I quietly opened my bistro a little while ago and we now have a steady stream of visitors but I have always planned an official
said Lisa, who has run the Centre for 21 years.
“This project has been a long time in the creating and I decided we really should be having a bit of a party and shouting out that visitors are always welcome, even if they are non-riders. We have a lovely menu and great views.”
A day of equestrian themed activities will take place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, 22nd April. There will be a timetable of live
demonstrations, including natural horsemanship with Lisa Gregory and ‘Equifit’ and ‘Equilates’ – our unique take on exercise on
horseback. There will also be a mechanical bucking bronco.
BHS Registered Instructor, Karen Hudson, will show how she teaches pupils ranging from young children to older experienced
riders and the centre’s resident stallion, the Dutch Warmblood Zidane, will parade with all his offspring. There will also be an
opportunity to meet all 46 equine residents of the centre and special offers available.
