The co-founder of a disability riding school has sadly died this week.

June Webb, of Diamond Centre, passed away peacefully, 86-years of age, on July 15.

June and her husband Keith, a mounted policeman, established the centre, in Carshalton over 50 years ago.

Diamond Riding Centre specialises in teaching and training people with disabilities.

The community have described the co-founder as an “avid horse lover” and a “truly amazing” person.

June and her husband shared a passion and enthusiasm for disabled riding, which over the years has benefited many people with physical disabilities and learning difficulties.

Steve Axon, Chairman of the Trustees, said: “Quite simply, Diamond would not exist had it not been for their vision and foresight and we will always be thankful for all June did for the centre."

June and Keith retired to the Forest of Dean some years ago and June’s family have asked that donations in her memory should go to the Diamond Centre.
