We hope to see you soon, come and visit us at the Arena even if you’re not Riding this Term, we love visitors.  And don’t forget to check out What’s On, we’ve got lots happening the autumn as we celebrate our 30th anniversary!

Indoor Market – Crafters, producers and car boot-ers wanted!

Last year’s inaugural Indoor Market was a great success, with 50 fantastic crafters, producers and car boot-ers, lots of Christmas shoppers, live music and our Barn Cafe!

We’re back for a second year on Sunday 20th October, 11am – 3pm, and are looking for crafters, producers and car boot-ers.  Bookings are now open, catch early Christmas shoppers, or do some shopping yourself.  We just ask that there be no sales of baking or hot food as these are Muirfield Riding Therapy’s own primary fundraising stalls.

Tables cost £25, and our huge Arena can hold 50 tables, with a table measuring 1.8m x 0.8m set up with 1.5m space between separate stall holders. You can of course purchase more than one table for yourself and they will be placed together.

Interested Stallholders please contact fundraising@muirfieldridingtherapy.org.uk or 07772 838945

Throughout 2019 we are celebrating 30 years of providing life-changing riding therapy to children and adults with various disabilities, from East and Mid Lothian.
