Whether you are a complete beginner, a novice rider looking to improve your ability or an experienced rider aspiring towards your BHS exams, we are the centre for you. We have a variety of horses and ponies to suit all riders and friendly, knowledgeable instructors to help improve your riding capability.
We are a BHS (British Horse Society) approved riding school. The BHS are committed to promoting through its approval scheme, the highest standards of equine welfare, equestrianism and customer service at riding schools. Approved establishments such as ourselves must have horse and pony welfare along with client safety and satisfaction as priorities.
Our various lessons and services are addressed in more detail below
We offer group lessons, all of which are standardised; the initial beginner classes are 30minute sessions, and aim to teach riders how to communicate the basic aids and how to walk, trot and canter on a safe, straightforward horse or pony. Children from the age of 4 can take part in our beginner classes. From here riders progress to our beginner hour class, whey they are required to ride more independently and begin to tackle small jumps. Following on from this we have intermediate and advanced classes, where more technical exercises, lateral work and jumping play more of a prominent role.
Beginner 1/2 hour child £11.50 | Beginner 1/2 hour adult £12.50
Intermediate/advanced hour child £16.00 | Intermediate/advanced hour adult £16.50
