Memorial horse riding jump takes pride of place at Warwick stables

Leamington Editorial 13th Jul, 2023   0

A JUMP has been installed at a riding stables near Warwick in memory of a generous supporter.

The jump was unveiled at a ceremony at Riding for the Disabled’s National Centre at Shrewley in memory of rotarian Andrew Morley.

Andrew, of Warwick Avon Rotary Club, was very keen to support the charity that enables disabled people of all ages to experience horse riding, as he suffered from multiple sclerosis himself.

RDA gave him the opportunity to ride a horse and he said it was something he treasured.




Andrew raised funds by holding a silent auction with help from friends and local businesses.

He died before an official presentation could be made so in his honour RDA suggested the cash be used to construct a jump which would be used at their events throughout the year.


The launch of the jump took place at a ceremony recently, attended by rotarians, family and friends, followed by afternoon tea. Andrew’s grandson Arthur cut the ribbon.

Lisa Davies from RDA said: “We are so grateful of the support given by rotary and it is through people like Andrew that this is possible. Rotary gives so much support throughout the UK through our many local centres. Every time we hold an event your stand will be on display to show your support.”
