Saddling up with the pony club at Panshanger Park

August 8, 2023

Members of the Enfield Chace Hunt Pony Club were able to enjoy a summertime ride around the sights of Panshanger Park. 

The six-mile off-road route included the use of footpaths not normally available for horse riding, along with a leisurely trot around the restored lakes, woodlands and historic landscape, with all 50 participants – aged five to 60 – receiving a rosette on completion.

Michael Charlton, our estates manager, said: “We were more than happy to support and host the Enfield Chance Hunt Pony Club. I’m glad that the participants had a good day riding along the unique scenic route around the park.”  

Katrina Midgley, district commissioner for the club, said: “Panshanger Park has a lasting history with Enfield Chace Hunt Pony Club, so we were delighted to be given permission to use the park for our fun ride. It was a splendid opportunity to explore the wonderful parkland on horseback and we hope to be able to make it an annual event.”
