Fully qualified instructors are available for group or private individual lessons. If you would like a lesson or to go pony trekking, then booking is essential.

The Advantages of Horse Riding:
Riding is one of Britain’s fastest growing sports.
It is great for fitness and posture, as well as improving confidence and emotional well-being. There’s no better feeling than to be at one riding with your horse!
It is a great outdoor hobby to have.
Taking up riding is a great way to meet new friends with a mutual interest. A lot of our old pupils (now with their own horses) regularly go riding together.
It is a great work ethic for kids and teenagers.
