Persi​mm​on Ber​ry ​Riders at Canterbury Stables 

Riding For The Cure​​

We ​think the equestrian sport is a platform to not only learn the responsibility that comes from caring for a horse but also provides life long friendships  

We use our platform to help the ​community and beyond. 


Thanks to our 2019 performance riders
