Stephen Metcalfe, local MP for South Basildon and East Thurrock, attended the Longwood Equestrian Centre’s show jumping Christmas fun event last week to present prizes to two of the eight classes competing.

The event saw hundreds of riders take part in events such as the ‘Evening Clear’ round, one of many show-jumping and equestrian events that take place at the centre throughout the year.

Mr Metcalfe commented: “I thoroughly enjoyed the event. There is some fantastic talent at the Centre and I would like to congratulate all those involved, both competitors and organisers.”

Having been established on the site for over 30 years as both a competition centre and an Approved Riding School, Longwood Equestrian Centre has a long and valuable association with Basildon.

Mr Metcalfe added: “This is a great facility and it was great to see so many people making use of it.”
