Rockstar Equitation Centre, a Cannock-based riding school, will begin construction of a new Horse Manege, an enclosed area in which horses and riders are trained, after receiving a £50,000 Flexible Business Loan from HSBC.
The new Manege will allow the centre to offer additional riding lessons following an increase in demand. Serving as a controlled space to ride and train in, the facility is suitable for all equine disciplines and will cater for an additional 20 new students per month, helping the business increase turnover by 20 per cent during the next 12 months.
Since opening in 2011, Rockstar has been officially recognised by the British Horse Society (BHS) for providing a wide variety of professional, fun and enjoyable riding lessons to the public and equine industry to clients of all ages.
Kay Scott-Jarvis, owner of Rockstar Equitation Centre, said: “The loan from HSBC has been essential in ensuring we could manage the construction costs of the new Manege. It will also allow us to expand on our existing clientele by offering additional lessons and continue providing the necessary skills needed for this sport.”
Steve Peart, HSBC’s Area Director for Business Banking in the Black Country & Shropshire said: “We’re delighted to support Rockstar Equitation Centre as the business expands to accommodate more lessons. We’re committed to helping British businesses, no matter how big or small, realise their growth ambitions.”
The funding for Rockstar Equitation Centre was arranged by Jon Ewings, one of HSBC’s Agricultural Managers in the Black Country & Shropshire region.
