We teach children, teenagers and adults, from complete beginners (we are unfortunately unable to accommodate adult beginners) to those with a lifetime of experience.

All our horses and ponies are experienced and well schooled. We have cobs to connemaras, shetlands to warmbloods so we really do have the right horse or pony for every rider.

We operate an upper weight limit of 13 1/2 stone for flatwork and hacking and 12 1/2 stone for jumping , these weights are inclusive of riding hats and body protectors. All our horses and ponies have an individual weight limits applied to them. All new riders will be required to weigh themselves on our scales in private before riding commences, all riding school clients and sharers that ride with us regularly will also be required to do the same at various points throughout the year or if a horses or ponies weight limit changes, this could be requested without any prior notice.

We offer semi-private or group lessons, lots of different activities for children and adults during the term time, school holidays, weekends and evenings. We also have superb hacking in the South Downs National Park and direct access onto The Shipwrights Way from the yard entrance.
