Natalie O'Rourke has been the driving force behind Park Lane Stables since 2008. Her crusade to bring the magic of horses to all has been recognised by HRH Princess Anne (President of the Riding for the Disabled Association) who refers to them as 'the pavement ponies', and by HRH Queen Elizabeth, who invited the Park Lane team to the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace in 2021. Natalie is an RDA coach, on the national Pony Club committee, and a champion of the principles of Monty Roberts' Natural Horsemanship. She was awarded an MBE in 2022 in recognition of her work with the community in general and with the RDA in particular. Natalie lives with husband Dick and children Alice and Woody in Teddington in South West London.
