Riding School

Our riding school has been up and running for just over two years now and we've gathered a loyal clientele of local riders of all ages and abilities.

We offer either private lessons or group lessons for all ages and abilities. We have lessons suitable for beginners, intermediate or experienced riders. We only have 2 to 4 riders in our group lessons, ensuring plenty of individual attention.

Facilities

Sand school extensive hacking including forest and beach.

What we offer

In addition to lessons, we offer ride outs and beach rides in the surrounding area. We have a Saturday Saddle Club with lessons and pony fun for children. We also plan several special training events this year, trying out some new horseback disciplines and new fun sports.

Staff

Our Riding instructor is the lovely Katie Shepherd

We really like Katies teaching methods. She works really well with children in particular and really concentrates on getting the children in her lessons riding correctly and effectively in a fun environment. They all love her! She explains things really clearly and gets great results.

Her lessons for adults are again well structured and tailored to the ability of the riders in each group. She is great with beginners and nervous riders as well as more experienced riders and unlike some riding instructors who tend to teach the group as a whole, Katie really concentrates on the improving the ability of each individual rider within the group, not only explaining what they need to do to improve, but how and why those sometimes very minor changes influence the way the horse responds.

1pm for 2 1/2 hours for 9 - 16 yer olds - £25

If we have enough demand, there is the possibility that we could also run a club on Sundays too.

Adult Saddle club - £30

At the moment we're getting names together for folk who are interested in doing the adult saddle club. We're planning on running it on Sunday afternoons through the winter and one evening a week once the nights get lighter. The plan is to do a riding lesson or hack, a bit of stable management/horsecare and we'll throw in other fun activities, like games on horseback etc - something fun and maybe a bit silly - stuff that kids might do, but we as adults miss out on - Why should the kids get all the fun! The exact format will change a bit every week. Coffee and a blether afterwards is optional. The sessions will be about two and a half hours.
