Study Centre opened by Lord-Lieutenant at Island Riding Centre

We were delighted to welcome Mrs Susie Sheldon, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for the Isle of Wight to officially open our study centre at the Island Riding Centre.

Football freestyle comes to the IRC

Legendary YouTube vlogger and 5 x World record holder and football freestyler Daniel Cutting came to stay with us at Island Riding Centre in June.

Hoping to make a sun-kissed video on Appley Beach in Ryde – the home of Isle of Wight Beach Soccer – the British weather took hold and Daniel and his friends took the sensible option and came inside for an impromptu 5-a-side football game in our indoor arena.

See how they got on here

Whilst visiting Daniel was kind enough to take time out and meet some of his 600,000 YouTube followers and even give them some tips on how to follow in his footsteps!
