We aim to give our young riders opportunities to learn about horses and their care as well as practical riding skills.

Children’s Weekend Clubs

We offer a range of  clubs on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year, catering for all levels of experience in riding and pony care.  The age recommendations below are a guide only, experience is more important and some children learn more quickly than others. Above all we want your child to enjoy the learning experience and to meet other children with a shared enthusiasm for horses and riding. Our riding clubs are for having fun!
