The Horse Rangers Association was founded in 1954 by Raymond Gordon as a voluntary youth movement centered on horsemanship.
The Horse Rangers Association is a children’s charity whose aim is to enable members to become interested and involved with horses, regardless of their background. Membership is open to young people over the age of 8 who are resident in the Tendring and Colchester area who do not have their own horse or pony. At the Harwich Troop we seek to give opportunities for young people, regardless of background, ability or financial circumstances, to be around and work with horses and ponies in a safe environment. We aim to build character, provide structure, discipline and have lots of fun. All instruction and care for the horses is provided by volunteers and members.
