AN equestrian centre near Ringwood has undergone a rapid expansion and is now one of the biggest in the region.

Some 16 new stables have been built at Parley Equestrian Centre – bringing the number to almost 70.

An indoor school and an all-weather showjumping arena are also planned for the centre, which is run by Jane Wyatt, who has led two horses to victory in the Horse of the Year Show.

The centre now has more than 100 horses, including 93 full, grass and DIY liveries, and holds regular showjumping and dressage events throughout the year.
