Our superb facilities, welcoming atmosphere, and efficient and highly qualified staff will provide you with an exceptional experience.

We run a thriving Riding School, catering for all ages (5+) and abilities. We offer group lessons and private lessons in both flatwork and jumping. Lessons are available on weekday evenings and throughout the day on a Saturday. We have a fantastic range of horses, from 13hh lead rein ponies to schoolmasters and advanced competition horses. Block booking discounts are available and we also offer a membership scheme, entitling members to discounted lesson prices and further benefits. We run a Centre-based Pony Club for children who do not have their own horse or pony.

We offer a range of livery options which are as follows: Working Livery, DIY Livery, Part Livery, and Full Livery with and without exercise. We have permanent stabling for 36 horses, with additional facilities including year-round turnout, a fully alarmed tack room and rug room, horse walker, solarium and shower facility, feed room, and storage for hay and haylage. All livery owners have access to our fantastic facilities and our staff are always on hand to offer guidance and support.

We run BHS training courses for external clients, from Stage 1 up to Stage 4 and Preliminary Teaching training. We are also an approved BHS exam centre. In addition to BHS training, we offer a wide range of part-time courses including clipping, equine first aid, course building, and anatomy and dissection.

We provide top-class facilities and services to competitors and clients of all levels. All our facilities are available and can be hired for shows, rallies, and training purposes. We have an international-sized indoor arena with training mirrors and a recently refreshed gel-track surface. Our seating gallery holds 250 people and we also offer a fully stocked canteen. The arena is equipped with competition standard lighting, jump store, judge’s box, PA and sound system, and timing equipment. Our outdoor arena measures 65m x 65m and features an all-weather surface, floodlights, and Duralock portable fencing to separate training/competition areas.

We regularly host affiliated and unaffiliated dressage and show jumping competitions, enabling us to cater for both ends of the competitor spectrum, from young children to professional riders. We provide a professional but relaxing environment, which makes us a very popular competition centre. All our competitions can be entered online via Equo Events. Competitions are held on a Sunday and we also run Clear Round show jumping on the first and second Thursday of each month. Schedules and details of all our events can be found on our website and Facebook page.
