Cornish riding school wins tourism award

A family-run riding school near Redruth, Cornwall has been given a silver award by the Cornwall Tourist Board.

Cornish Riding Holidays — which is run by Janet Dallimore and her daughter Karen Trezise — came second in the “Tourism activity, sport and experience of the year” category at the awards ceremony on 8 November.

“I can’t believe it,” said Janet. “I have never heard of a riding school being successful with something like this before. It is the first time we have entered and we are thrilled.”

Karen added: “Everything has gone so well this year — we seem to be on a bit of a roll. But much of our success is due to the wonderful staff and volunteers we have, some of which have been with us for over 20 years.”

Cornish Riding Holidays was established in 1984 and is run as a riding school and holiday centre with students staying from across the world.
