Expert Personalised Riding Tuition

We provide tuition for riders of all ages and skill levels.  To date our youngest rider has been two and a half years old, and our oldest has been sixty eight !  We provide tuition for the beginner through to the very top levels of advanced competition.  Individual and group lessons are available and we regularly run Instruction Schools from One to Three  days.  Some live-in places are also available.  Our training is performed on all-weather training areas, grassed work areas, private trails and our cross country course.

Comprehensive instruction is given to our pupils in all aspects of caring for a horse.

Our priorities are:- Safety, Enjoyment, Sympathetic Horsemanship, and then Success.

Our instructors are accomplished riders in their own right and provide expert personalised tuition.

We run regular 1-day and 3-day Riding Schools for beginners and more advanced students.  We also have coming up a Show Preparation School and run half-day courses on behalf of the Department of Sport and Recreation.
