Lessons are available for all levels of riders from the complete beginner to the competitive showjumper.

Whether you’re looking to try out a horse for the first time or seeking to improve your riding techniques or getting back in the saddle after a break we are delighted to help.

Horse riding is a great source of active relaxation regardless of age and it is not just a pastime for the fit, but a sport that can make you fit. A weekly horse riding session addresses many fitness aspects: fat burning, limbering up, strengthening the body and boosting flexibility, as well as training to be as one with the horse.

“Horse riders are strongly motivated to take part in riding by the sense of well-being they gain from interacting with horses” British Horse Society

Lessons are available for all levels of riders from the complete beginner to the competitive showjumper.
