Coronavirus update – We are closed – Muirfield Riding Therapy

Tuesday 17 March 2020

From Michelle Sutton, Chair, Muirfield Riding Therapy,


Hello Everyone,

I am writing to you with a heavy heart to let you know that Muirfield Riding Therapy is now closed because of the impact of the Coronavirus.  This closure includes the cancellation or postponement of all training and fundraising events until the end of May.


As has always been the case the health and well being of our riders and volunteers is the priority in our decision making process. With the recent government announcements we feel we can no longer operate our riding therapy sessions.


I know that this will be really disappointing to those people who will miss the last 2 weeks of their terms riding.  We are already getting calls about when we will reopen – the honest answer is we simply do not know. We will review again on a regular basis but I do not expect to open before the 1st June and so unlikely to offer regular sessions until after the Summer holidays.


To protect our team of volunteers and employees the MRT office will not be manned for the next few weeks.  Instead our admin teams will be working from home as much as they can. If you need to get in touch please drop us an email and we will respond as soon as we can;

Services, Susan Law: [email protected]

Administration, Shirely Duff: [email protected]

Thank you for your support and understanding at this difficult time.  Our thoughts are with you all and we look forward to seeing our riders back in the future.


Stay safe!
