Designed around you. Whether you are starting from the beginning, want to improve on what you have already achieved, or just want to build your confidence. We have a choice of 50 horses and several instructors to suit you.

Group Lessons


A chance for you to ride with like minded people. We cater for all ages and abilities and will have a class that is right for you. If you have not ridden with us before we recommend to start with a private lesson so we can assess you and fit you into the best group for your ability.



We cater for all abilities from complete beginners to the more experienced rider looking for a challenging ride. Enjoy a one hour ride around traditional Devonshire lanes and countryside.
