Baking Hot!

Our Open Days just wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have the wonderful home baking that our volunteers and supporters provide.

The tasty treats look tantalisingly delicious and we usually sell out of them pretty fast.  We have a dedicated stall for the baking and we also have some in the cafe.  Last year we had cakes all shapes and sizes and calorific proportions.

So, grab your pinny, get your mixing bowl out and get baking for Ravelrig.  We made almost £200 last year with the baking, let’s see if we can beat that figure!

Bake for Ravelrig!


Sparkling Time!

Thank you to everyone who helped with our Christmas Open Day preparations and those who helped on the day, without you all we couldn’t have done it, so thank you!!

Thank you also to those who came along on the day, we had a great time and we hope you did too.

Santa rode in with his elves on horseback after having a tour of Balerno.  Settling in to his cosy grotto he managed to meet all the children and make sure he had a note of exactly what they wanted for Christmas, so he wouldn’t forget!

With the wonderfully tasty homebaking, warming homemade soup and hot dogs no one went hungry.  Craft and game stalls, live music, our Tombolas and raffle went really well and not forgetting our pony rides.  There was lots of fun for everyone.

With your help and support we raised over £1,500 for Ravelrig, so a huge big sparkling Thank you from us all!

Here’s some photos from the day.

Get Baking for Ravelrig!

It’s our Christmas Open Day and we are looking for all your bakers and cake makers out there to fling on your pinny and get baking for us!

Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated and like every Open Day we have there won’t be a crumb left in sight at closing time!

You can drop off your goodies either on the Saturday 25th or the morning of Sunday 26th

Thank you!

For our Christmas Open Day

Date for your Diary

We are holding our fantastically sparkly Christmas Open Day on the 26th November from 12pm – 3pm and you are ALL invited.

Katie in the office at Ravelrig has been in touch with Santa’s Elves and we can confirm he is booked to come and visit us, so come along and meet Santa.

There will be lots of other fun things to see and do during the day, from refreshments, our tasty home baking, stalls, raffle, tombolas, games and crafts.  The wonderful Ravelrig horses will also be there for you to meet and even ride.

So get your diary out and mark the 26th November as your “FUN DAY at Ravelrig” and we look forward to welcoming you all along to the stables.

Remember to wrap up warm!

Bake a Cake

With another Fundraising event around the corner we are looking for all your wonderful bakers out there to provide a cake, or two, to our Home baking stall.

Our Home Baking stall is always really popular and if the selection we received for our Open Day in June was anything to go by it is obvious why!

We had a fantastic choice  of cakes, buns, chocolate crispies and loafs that were enthusiastically demolished quickly.

So, if you can help us raise more money for Ravelrig and bake a cake then drop your baking donation in to us on the morning of the 17th September

Thank you!

Sweet Tooth?

Ravelrig Riding for the Disabled is proud to be one of five charities the Scottish Building Society have chosen to support in Scotland during 2017.  Did you know it is the oldest building society in the world having been set up in 1848?

They are raising money in a number of ways, including regular baking events and this is where their brilliant recipe book has come from.

With 47 mouth watering recipes to tempt you this little book certainly packs a sweet punch.  It will make a great gift for yourself or maybe you know someone who wants to get in to baking, needs new recipes to try out or someone recently moved house.

For just £4.50 it can be yours and all proceeds go back to Ravelrig.

I can’t vouch for all the recipes but I can certainly say that the Maltese cake is a must try!

If you would like to purchase one, drop in to the office or drop an email.

Happy Baking!


Great British Bake Off

Have you ever watched the Great British Bake Off and thought, “I could do that?”  Well now you can and help Ravelrig along the way.

We are looking for lots of home baking for our Open Day cafe and stall so find that pinny and mixing bowl and create some treats for us to make Paul, Mary and the Ravelrig ponies proud.

Remember to let us know you are baking by adding your name to the list in the Club Room or drop us an email
