Horse Riding School

We offer horse riding lessons to all ages and abilities with a variety of ponies and horses to assist you in learning to ride.
From just 36 inches to 16.2hh – young and old – fast and slow – jumping high and low!

Learn to ride horses, in a safe & secure environment.
It is extremely important for us to have a good and open relationship between us, the children and the parents.

You are welcome to come and have a look you can view lessons from benches placed on the sides of the arena – don't forget to bring a carrot for any special new friends you might meet!

OSCAR Approved

All horse riding is OSCAR approved
We are now OSCAR approved for all lessons - as well as holiday programmes.

This gives you assurance we meet government standards for health and safety (and eligible families can apply for subsidies for all their horse riding)
