Conquest Centre is a specialist equine centre dedicated  to improving the health and well-being of people with disabilities.

Disabled people often struggle to find the chance to take part in inclusive sports and activities. Horse-riding and other horse-based activities can offer these opportunities and research shows they have real positive impact on physical and mental health, social skills and self confidence.

Based in Somerset, the centre offers a whole range of activities, from riding and carriage driving to horse care and sensory work . As well as teaching people how to ride and work with horses, the charity also provides training for qualifications, volunteering and work experience opportunities in the stables and the cafe.

I’ve been a freemason for almost 22 years – in fact I’m coming up to the anniversary next month. I’m retired now but I was an accountant by trade; accountant to lodge almoner isn’t the most natural step, but there you go!   About seven years ago our old almoner was going through some family…
