As a family-run business, Downton has a Corporate Social Responsibility more extensive than most. Earlier this month, Downton transported the new stable block for charity Cotswold RDA, generously donated by the Avon and Somerset Constabulary, to its new home at Prestbury Park Racecourse.
The new stable block, developed by Monarch Stables, comes as a great relief to the charity whose existing stalls are in incredibly poor condition.
All of the riders at Cotswold Riding for the Disabled are physically disabled or have learning difficulties/special needs. The charity aims to promote a culture of learning, development, achievement and enjoyment to their riders to allow each and every one to reach their full potential. They have over 180 riders each week, supported by 120 volunteers.
