We have worked with horses and ponies all our lives and enjoy to share with you a wealth of experience so that you too can enjoy the exciting and varied world of horses and ponies!
We teach balance on the horse and understanding of the horse as top priorities, all our lessons, exercises and rides are based on these principles
On rainy days or for flat work lessons you can ride in the 40m x 20m covered arena and on pleasant days enjoy a ride out over the scenic Pennine moors.
You can get your riding muscles toned up with bareback riding and lunge lessons on our lovely quiet and friendly horses and ponies, riding up and down our purpose made hills also develops your core strength and forward seat ready to enjoy show jumping or 'cross-country' riding in the fields! Check out the exercises to keep fit in between lessons (Rider exercises on the address bar). We have competed successfully internationally in show jumping and two of our horses hold high jump records!
We also specialise in the new sport 'Working Equitation' which is great fun and can be enjoyed by all abilities and ages of rider! The Spanish horses that we breed here are well suited to this sport and have already won national competitions.
Beginner adult and child riders are well looked after and you will quickly gain in ability and confidence.
Our parent and child lead rein classes are a great way to learn together! Parents are taught how to lead our lovely, friendly ponies and children from the age of 4 years old can be led around the arena, even progressing to a quiet walk around the reervoir when confidence and abilities increase!
Children from the age of six years old can enjoy Pony Parties here - you do not need to be a pony rider either! Pony Parties are a great way to show your friends how much fun ponies are. Enjoy a birthday party with a difference!
Young riders at HBEC may also enjoy to come for the day in the school holidays! Pony days are great fun and a good way to learn about ponies and make new pony friends
Horse and pony loans are available for experienced riders at HBEC
