You will be provided with one of our quiet and well-mannered horses carefully suited to your needs. Our four-legged friends range from tiny ponies, to magnificent shire horses. For the novice rider, a gentle ride with a leading escort to learn the basics in riding, or for the more experienced rider, a faster pace over more demanding terrain. Riding groups are always accompanied by one or more experienced escort(s) / instructor(s).
There are opportunities for more experienced riders to separate from the rest of the ride in order to canter, even if other members of their family/group are novice riders who choose to stay in walk and trot. Cantering depends on ground and weather conditions and will be at the discretion of the instructor.
Lessons / Lead Rein Rides
Our lessons take place in a 20m x 40m sand and rubber chip outdoor arena, where riders can learn the basics or work to improve dressage and jumping skills. Whatever your level of riding experience, we have a horse and a ride to suit you. We also have a cross country course for our more experienced riders who have their own body protectors.
