Tots Trot

Tots Trots

For the very young we offer Tots Trots - a trip through fields and woods for 15 minutes on a pony with leaders and parents. 

Lead Rein

From around age 6 we begin teaching you to ride, starting with Lead Rein classes where you will learn all about your ponies, how to sit on them and basic control.

Off Lead Rein & Open Order

Once you have mastered the basics you will be moved up to Off Lead Rein where you get to have the pony all to yourself! And then Open Order in which you will be taught how to control your pony when not following the others.

Learn to Canter & Jump

Learn to Canter - anyone  want to guess what you learn in this one? If you got that right then you may already have guessed that Learn to Jump follows on! 

Birthday Parties

Why not have your Birthday at the stables?

You can invite your friends no matter if they are riders or not and come spend a couple hours playing ponies and generally having fun in the countryside!

Riding Lessons for Adults

We teach all standards. Maybe you always wanted to ride and never got around to it or maybe you used to ride as a child and feel the urge to get back in the saddle. Perhaps you are experienced but looking for a new place for lessons. Either way we have a horse for you so come and have a go. 

Why not try our free assessment, or visit us to have a look around and a chat.

Vouchers are available to buy as gifts for friends and family or how about treating yourself to 11 riding lessons for the price of just 10?


Or why not try our Intensive 6 week courses! 6 consecutive weeks of hour lessons with a set syllabus to get you to where you want to be, including horsemanship, stable management and rider confidence.
