About Apples Equestrian

About Me (Rachel)

I am Rachel Woodford-Allton and I have been running an equestrian centre in Stitchens Hill, near Malvern, for several years and have recently rebranded my riding school to Apples Equestrian. Apples Equestrian is registered with the Malvern Hills District Council and I have a recent Enhanced CRB check, which is available to view upon request.

I have held a British Horse Society Level II Certificate in Stable Management for many years and I am a qualified riding instructor.
