STAFF at one of England's busiest pony club centres feel 'devastated' to be told they have to find a new home.

Echo's Equestrian Livery & Coaching Centre in Slough Road, Iver Heath, has apparently been told to "find a new home" as a new land management company want to build on Moorwards Farm, where the centre currently is.

The centre, which opened six year's ago, is home to horses, ponies, pigmy goats, rabbits and is even home to exotic animals like Daphne the tortoise.

According to Echo's Equestrian, the centre has been given "notice to leave Moorwards Farm by the new land management company next year."

They wrote on social media to explain the situation.

"It is with the deepest regrets that we write this post", they said

"The team have worked tirelessly to try and find an agreement but sadly to no avail and so Moorwards will be turned into a site for construction and storage. As you can imagine we are devastated at the thought of not only losing our home but also our Echo's family.

"So we are hoping for a Christmas miracle in the search for a new home and hope someone in our network may know of a site we can relocate to."

"As one of England's busiest Pony Club Centre's, we know what a loss this will be to the children of the surrounding areas if we cannot find a new home, but rest assured we will not give up without a fight.

"We have always prided ourselves in our efforts to make riding affordable to everyone especially at a time when so many riding schools are having to close and costs are rising.

"We thank everyone for your support in the past, whether it be through, Pony Club, Hoof Camp or Residential camp, our fantastic liveries and amazing volunteers or if you've been along to one of our community events and hope when we find a new home you will remain part of our Echo's family, because that's is what we are and have always been, a big family."
