I think they refer to preventing people from taking pictures from a distance of 25 meters or so.

As it is right now there is a sentry outside Kancellihuset where M&F live when at Frendensborg and the public isn't allowed past the sentry. And that sentry stands about 25 meters from the riding ring.
But if the access is restricted to nearer than the main road leading up to the palace, then we are talking 50 meters or so. And only a part of the ring will be visible.

As it is right now, the public can get close enough to see the stables in full, the whole front of Kancellihuset and the palace church - and as such also the whole of the riding ring.
And surely there will be no reason to restrict access when the CP-couple isn't around.

I'm surprised that a charity paid and not the Government because it's government property.

From the DRF in May

"Over the past year, the Agency for Culture and Palaces has been in the process of re-establishing Fredensborg Palace's original riding arena from 1720 as well as parts of the adjoining stable."⁣ ⁣


"The course has been closed for many years, but on the occasion of His Royal Highness the Crown Prince's 50th birthday on 26 May 2018, the board of directors of A.P. Møller and Wife Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller's Foundation for General Purposes granted an amount for the establishment of the historic old riding arena. In addition, the foundation granted funds for the renovation of parts of Long Stables at Fredensborg Palace. In the past year, the project has been carried out by the Palaces and Culture Agency, and in April the re-establishment was completed.⁣ "

The A.P. Møller Foundation has donated to the restoration of the statue at Amalienborg Palace square on the occasion of Queen Margrethe II's 25th regency anniversary, the restoration of Fredensborg Palace gardens some years ago, etc and many other similar projects.

As Nordic pointed out it's not the first time the Mærsk Foundation funded part of what is an ongoing restoration of Fredensborg to how it originally looked.
The Mærsk Foundation - and other foundations often help fund restorations or renovations of buildings and places that are of national, historical and cultural significance.
The various government agencies have a budget dedicated to maintenance, repair and minor restorations, so it happens very often that various foundations donate money for major projects.
It's tax deductible and creates goodwill for the companies and business owners - in this case the Mærsk family. And it earns brownie points for the company at the municipality, state or the DRF. Which is also good for business.
Also, in this case it cements the affiliation between the DRF and major Danish businesses. Because if you are a shady business-owner who offers to pay for a major renovation of say Kronborg Castle - you will be flatly refused. You have to have a good reputation in order to be accepted as a donor to a major project, which again means you get an official stamp of approval for being reliable and of good repute and you get favorable treatment in return. Say a government minister or the DRF help promote your business abroad.
It's very much a give and take system.

Surprisingly it works, because it's based on mutual trust, integrity and the fact the everybody of importance know everybody else of importance in the Danish business world.
And if you fall out of grace, you fall deep! As we have seen recently with a former close friend of PH, Kristian Kjær.

It is.

Garden landscaping or should I say garden design, was a highly developed art by the time Fredensborg was build in the 1720's.

It is of course labor-intensive and therefor expensive to keep such a garden and fashion changes. By the early half of the 1800's it was the "wild" nature that was in. - Wild as in deliberately made to look wild.
That was also the case in the park around Fredensborg. Hence why it until recently looked pretty much like a well-groomed wooded landscape-scene.
