We love and respect our horses

Matching a horse and rider is key to us.

We have many horses and ponies suitable for different levels of ability for both children and adults. Each member of our team are fully vetted and trialled by one of our staff members to ensure they are completely suitable for the school. Whether you are looking to jump a course of fences, ride a dressage test or simply have a chilled out hack in the forest we have the perfect horse for you.
